Beaded Diamond Mosaic Hat
Note: Pattern includes instructions for coordinating crew socks and fingerless mittens, along with the hat shown here.
Stitch Instructions: written
Materials: 75(85) yards of lighter color yarn; 120(140) yards of darker color yarn; 903(1032) size 6/0 (4mm diameter) seed beads - approx 76(86) g
Summary: Make a snazzy hat in two colors of DK weight yarn of your choice and size 6/0 seed beads.
From the pattern descriptions: Although the colorwork might appear involved, the slip-stitch color knitting is simple because you only need to handle one yarn color at a time. The beads give an added depth of color and look of complexity to an otherwise simple beaded knitting technique.
