This is a hat and mittens pattern utilizing mosaic knitting techniques. It is suitable to the advanced beginner, but able to hold the interest of advanced knitters. Mosaic knitting produces complex colorwork patterns using only one strand of yarn at a time, and is easy to learn.

The pattern provides directions for both sport weight and fingering weight yarn. Also included are instructions for every size from 3-6mo to adult large. The sport weight, or light-dk-weight yarn, version is based on a gauge of 25st/4” (10cm). The fingering weight version is based on a gauge of 28st/4” (10cm). This pattern has been tested using a a range of gauges around those specified with satisfactory results.

It uses two colours of yarn, and test knitters used 100-130 yards of each colour. A variegated yarn against a contrasting solid colour has worked very well, and multiple testers have used pastels or traditionally girly colours to create a feminine version of this buggy hat!

This design is based on traditional Turkish Motifs, water and the Scorpion. The scorpion motif chart has been taken from the Barbara Walker book, Mosaic Knitting, and incorporated into an all over hat pattern.

The pattern includes two tutorials: one basic hat tutorial and a more detailed mitten tutorial. The mitten tutorial aims to teach knitters how to convert standard hat panels into matching mittens. It covers how to customize the fit of your mittens, and other important lessons for mitten knitting. This tutorial is for traditional mittens with an invisible thumb. the mitten tutorial is a separate pdf/link.

This hat and the mittens were test knit by members of the Ravelry community. Their contributions in finalizing this design were invaluable, and if you enjoy this design, you have them to thank.
