Fondue

 

Most knit hats are knit in a spiral, either from the bottom up or the top down. I wanted to see if I could extend this idea to spiral more than one yarn at a time. The result reminds me of my favorite restaurant’s white & dark chocolate fondue, right when you begin to swirl the two chocolates together.
