MosaiX hats: e-book: one hat, four differents patterns.

The four hats are also available in one e-book together with the mosaiX scarf: mosaiX

The hats are worked bottom up starting with a clever tubular cast on.
Only 1 color is worked per round. Pretty, well thought decreases shape the crown and form some surprising line drawings on top of the hat.
There are four different mosaic patterns to choose from, so you don’t need to print all the pages, just the one you want to make and the instructions you prefer: chart, or written instructions.

The pattern has been testknit.
