Make a snazzy hat in two colors of DK weight yarn of your choice and size 6/0 seed beads
Do you love beads and glitz? Then this one is for you. November’s Beyond BOBBOL Learn-and-Knit-A-Long focuses on slip-stitch color techniques and beads. The project is Beaded Basket Weave Mosaic Hat.
Although the colorwork might appear involved, the slip-stitch color knitting is simple because you only need to handle one yarn color at a time. The beads give an added depth of color and look of complexity to an otherwise simple beaded knitting technique.
Techniques used and described
- 2-color slip stitch mosaic knitting
- Beaded knitting (beads are strung onto yarn before knitting)
Note: Using beads is optional if you’d prefer to omit them.
