Two skeins of contrasting colors are needed for this hat. Each color uses less than 100 yds of yarn. (The colors I chose are just what I had left over.)

This hat is a result of a challenge in the Nerd Wars group on Ravelry – to make something related to Egyptian hieroglyphics. The hat has glyphs for water – the wavy lines near the brim – and for air/wind/boat – the main pattern.

It uses various Mosaic (the term coined by Barbara Walker) knitting techniques – which means many of the designs are achieved through slipping sts. It is stretchable to 22”
