This yarn looked much better in the “cupcake” than it does knitted out but hat #7 is finished. The pattern called for worsted weight yarn and size 9 needles but I used DK weight and size 6 needles making the largest size in the pattern knowing I’d still get a kid size hat.
- Pattern is Sweet Spring from the book Baby Beanies by Amanda Keeys
- Needle size – 6
- Yarn – Caron Cupcakes, colorway is Strawberry Kiwi Pop
I don’t know if the splotches of green dye in the other colors is intentional or whether it’s just a bad dye job but I don’t care for it. There’s enough yarn left in this cupcake for another hat and I have one more cupcake (that I know of) but I don’t think I’ll be buying any more of this yarn.
