Please note, this pattern does require you to use a chart, though it is a relatively simple one.

Named for the variety of scallop that inspired its colors (though they come in many other colors as well), Varia is a fun and feminine slouch-beanie where just a few rows of stranded colorwork provide a big pay off. Instructions for two sizes are provided- the smaller is suitable for older children and small-headed adults; the larger will be better for most other adults. (Keep in mind that, given the colorwork rows, this hat isn’t quite as stretchy as most.)

This pattern is available with it’s sister pattern, Pétoncle, in the Scallop Sisters ebook (get both for $8!)
