Knit yourself a gorgeous mosaic hat and try to stop at just one. A fun introduction to mosaic knitting, this really is so much simpler than it looks. Unlike stranded colourwork, only one colour is worked per round, and stitches are slipped to create texture and pattern. Take it further by playing with colour in your project. This is a fun way to use up those small yarn leftovers and explore your own creativity. Add an optional pom-pom, then whip up another to gift someone special.

Pattern includes charted and written instructions for the Mosaic section.
