Sold as part of the Point/Counterpoint, Volume 2, collection. Two designers + two yarns = inspiration through collaboration. Each designer independently created an accessory, then sent only a photo of the finished object to the other. In response, the designers used the same yarn to create a new accessory inspired by the first, thus making a set. The only limit was their creativity!

This pattern is knit to go with the Frondescence shawl by Prairie Girl Designs. It blew me away, and I wanted to interpret it in colorwork. It was simple enough to change the 8 yarn over leaves into 8 colorwork leaves and then top them off with a cheery pop of a flower. Like Frondescence, the Springs to Mind hat is segmented, meaning it was easy to offer in a variety of sizes.
