There are yarns & people that are just meant to be best friends forever. This pattern was inspired by two yarns that HAD to be together, lovingly hand dyed by my yarny BFF, Allison (aka theLoftyLoops).

Both friends & patterns can challenge us to become more than we were before as people & knitters. Allison challenged me to learn brioche & when I could not find the perfect pattern, she encouraged me to write one - my second brioche project ever. Find some yarns that need to be together forever & rock this beanie with your yarny BFF!
