Dianna’s done the math…with our palette, there are over 43,000 possible 3-color combinations for this sweet hat. So…she has generously given us two in this pattern, and we’ve had fun coming up with even more! We adore Dianna’s colorwork style, and this piece in particular features a really cool Latvian braid, which was fun testing out for sure. In our fingering weight Finch, this classic topper is a must-have for the chilly weather.
