This knit hat pattern is an exploration in slip stitch color work. The EASIEST of knit color work techniques you can learn! Use any two colors of worsted weight yarn to create this striking polka dot design hat. Mosaic knitting allows you to create gorgeous colorwork while only knitting with one color at a time. This pattern has a multiple of 8 sts in the round and a multiple of 8 sts + 6 when knit flat, even in rows. This hat is featured in my course Introduction to Knitting Part 3: A Trio of Colorful Hats. In this course you get 4.5 hours of video instructions, a 38 page handout and 3 hat patterns for only $19.99!
