Construction notes
Minno is worked in the round on dpn’s (or your preferred method) and shaped at the crown. The color “dots” are done by slipping the main color and working the constrast color. This slip-stitch method of colorwork is easy to master; just make sure you keep the tension relaxed in the carried yarn at the back of work.

An adult size small will fit most kids and youth sizes. Instructions are given for modifying size.
