Honeydust was inspired by the warm, drippy magic of honey. It calls for two worsted 50g skeins of contrasting colors. The hat incorporates colorwork, and one color drips into the next - so you can experiment with all kinds of color combinations. It works up fairly quick, and makes for a great stashbuster project!
