For a beginner project, you can't go wrong with a straight needle hat. Knit on two needles, the Glacier Sunrise Knit Hat Pattern is a great way to try knitting hats. Made using Caron Cakes Yarn, all of the work for the color progression is done by the yarn itself, so there's no need to join differently-colored yarns as you go. Topped off by a cute little pom pom, this trendy hat makes for a great accessory for kids and adults alike. We love it in the Gelato colorway but think it would look great with any color of Caron Cakes yarn.
