Beautiful quality yarn in Da Yoxie Hat Kit, with a clear, concise and easy to follow pattern.

The colours of the wool in the pack do not look as bright as the photo suggests but I expect this will change when the hat is knitted up.
The colours of the Silver Darlings beanie came out much darker than the photos but I am v happy with this.
