The hat and mitten set was inspired by the beautiful yarn itself. The speckling looks beautiful in twisted stitches of the cable and rib. Simple little lace sections add interest and are simple to knit. If you dislike knitting cables, don’t worry, you only have to do it a couple of times for the entire hat but I think it is worth it! The name for the set comes from Japanese for “lark” which references the name of this beautiful colourway of TactileDactyl yarn.
