Twisting cables undulate and wrap around bobbles in deep shades of cranberry and crimson while reverse stockinette panels highlight the cablework and provide a dappled canvas.

Red tells many stories: this hat was inspired by the gorgeous reds that Elena dyed in the Colour Adventures yarn.

I come from a small family. This yarn reminds me of my new family, my in-laws, and the warmth with which they’ve taken me in. I named it after a family recipe on my husband’s side that was passed down to me. I’ve also modifed it for vegeterian use with my friend Jan’s help. It will make your house smell incredible and free your hands up to knit!
