Fireflies dancing around, hidden from sight, twisting intricate cables in their rhythm, driven to warm the wearer … secretly celebrating with their dance, onwards to warm another, dancing in the rhythm of the clinks of our needles and the motion of our hands, as we compose their melody.

Dancing Fireflies Hat is worked in the round, from the bottom up to the crown. Charted and written instructions. US and metric measurements.

The coordinating Dancing Fireflies Cowl has a similar pattern, but in this pattern, the yarn-overs are closed, or minimized, to add warmth.
