What was your inspiration?
I love playing with graph paper and creating designs that translate well for knitting. I buy undyed yarn and dye it glorious shades. From that I get inspiration too.
What are you most proud of?
Froma distance this hat looks far more complicated than it really is. Especailly if you incorporate more colors.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Don't be afraid of 2 color knitting and use larger needles if you have a tighter gauge.
