A DK weight hat, this pattern is worked in the round, using a 12 stitch repeat. Each addition or subtraction of a pattern repeat changes the circumference by 2,” making this an easy pattern to resize. This hat features “beads” of varying sizes, that are visually weighted towards the top.

Placing a stitch marker every 12 stitches helps keep the color pattern on the right track, making it quicker and easier to find a mistake.

75 g of the main color and 50 g of the accent color should be plenty to work the largest size. All sizes measure 10” deep.

I recommend working the gauge swatch in a stranded colorwork pattern- sometimes switching from stockinette to colorwork can have a dramatic impact on your row gauge as well as your stitch gauge. The pattern includes suggestions for shortening the chart so the pattern remains balanced.
