This beautifully beaded spring slouch is knitted in the round on, first, size 4 16-inch circular needles, and then, size 6’s. The beads, on the featured hat, were pre-stranded with a Venus stranding needle by Bead Buddy. The pattern is for one size (women’s) but there are notes on how to go up or down sizes. The gauge listed for this hat is 5 stitches per inch. You will need: 680 size 6 glass beads, a stranding needle, one skein of Yarnitude DK, size 4 & 6 16-inch circular needles, and size 6 DPN’s (double-pointed needles). This hat was designed to be a gorgeous piece of spring head jewelry! There are also instructions on how to create the same design as the beads, with just stitches, if beads are not your thing.
