A little project that combines mosaic in the round and stranded knitting, using up those DK leftovers to make a bright, fun hat. Work it slouchy or work it snug and cosy; from toddler sized to large adult, there’s a size for every member of the family!

Sizes:
From Toddler to Large Adult
41 / 44 / 47 / 51 / 54.75 / 58.5cm
16 / 17.25 / 18.5 / 20 / 21.5 / 23”

Gauge:
24st / 66 rounds 4” / 10cm
Yes, there are a large number of rows per cm/inch, but mosaic garter stitch contracts vertically

Yarn:
In two colours, pattern uses from 30-60g each of each colour.
In three colours, use 5-10g of a third colour to work the knitted ball on top and hat band trim.
