Sometimes, as much as you might want to try and force something to work, you just have to sit back and let it go. Learning to let hand dyed yarns work for you can be a challenge, both for a designer and for a knitter eager to make something beautiful. Typically the best thing to do is use simple stitches and let the yarn do the rest of the work. These were my thoughts while writing the pattern for the Something Sweet hat.

When choosing a size select a circumference 2 to 3 inches smaller than your head.

When you’re done knitting your hat relax with the drink it was inspired by: a milkshake! The recipe can be found on the last page of the pattern.
