Regular price $6.00

Skill Level: Intermediate Knitting

The graphic stitch used in this beanie is a variation of Barbara Walker’s simulated basketweave pattern. The mosaic pattern is a 10-stitch, 16-round repeat and it can be worked from the chart or the written instructions. Only one colour is used at a time within a round and every 2nd pattern round is the same as the previous round.

It is knitted from the bottom edge up with a 2 x 2 rib band and if desired, any leftover yarn can be made in to a pompom.
