Listen for the silence that always precedes the beginning of a snowfall.

The Winter Silence hat and headband are made with the same mosaic stitch pattern, with the colors reversed. If you choose to make both the hat and headband you will need a second hank of (D). Two headbands could be made with one hank of each color.

For mosaic knitting in the round, rounds are worked in pairs, two rounds using the same color. The first round work as indicated in the pattern. On the second round, using the same color, you purl the same sts you knit in the previous round, and slip the same sts you slipped. Choose two colors of yarn with lots of contrast for best results.
