New beginnings are a little scary and a little exciting all at once. A new town, a new knitting technique, a new job. But with one foot in front of the other or one stitch at a time, it can turn out great. With help from friends and a fancy new hat it will be awesome.

The Sparwood hat is a great introduction to colour work knitting. Three colours are used over the hat but only two colours are worked at one time. Floats are only held over two stitches which will help with tension practice.
The Sparwood hat is a great project to using up leftover scrap yarn.
