Stranded colorwork can be intimidating, but my Winter Berries Hat and Cowl pattern is perfect for beginners to colorwork. If you’re a pro, then it’s just a fun design for some winter knitting. The pattern is designed to use only two colors at a time, which is great practice in yarn management. I hope you enjoy knitting up these berries and branches as much I did.

Happy Knitting!
Love from Haleigh
