Herringbone mosaic knitting makes this beanie designed by Andrea Mowry stand out from the crowd. If you've never tried mosaic knitting before, this is the perfect introduction!
This hat looks amazing made with two high-contrast colors, so we've selected a palette of jewel tones and neutrals to get your creative juices flowing. Don't see the colors you've been dreaming of? Check out all our Brooklyn Tweed Arbor here, or all our dk weight yarns here.
Keep in mind that saturated colors are apt to bleed onto light ones when you wash your project. To minimize this, use cold water and a quick dunk. Or - if the risk of colors bleeding is too stressful - pick a less saturated bright and/or a neutral with more color in it. For example, kits that use Porter (dark brown) as the neutral main color will have a much subtler pattern - but one with little risk of bleeding.
As pictured on Ravelry and in the pattern, the hat uses Brooklyn Tweed Arbor in Thaw (light gray) and Tincture (yellow).
The pattern is also available separately for $6 on Ravelry.
