Product details

The bold, geometric pattern on this hat is worked using only one color on any given round and instructions are included for both a slouchy hat and a beanie shape.  

This pattern is a great introduction to color work without the hassle of carrying two strands of yarn at once. 

The hat is truly unisex and can be made with or without the pom pom. 

What a great way to use up stash and leftover yarn from other projects! 

·         Mosaic colorwork is worked using one color per round without the hassle of carrying multiple strands of yarn in a single round.   

·         In the Mosaic colorwork, the slip sts are worked purl-wise wyib.

·         While working in the round, such as for this hat, Mosaic colorwork requires alternating colors every two rounds.  The 2nd round of same color is worked exactly the same as the 1st round of that color.

·         Size is adjustable by adding or subtracting 8 sts to cast on.

GAUGE:  22 sts/27 rows 4" in st st using larger needle.  Mosaic row gauge is 42 in 4".
