Smoochers Hat

In Hats, Patterns, Shop sample available, Worsted weight yarn by Shannon

This is a fun excuse to use two colors of your favorite hand-dyed yarn. It’s a great foray into colorwork, and the sizing allows you to make one for pretty much every member of your family – give them all a little knitterly smooch!
