Or worsted-weight yarns in the following amounts: Color A: 80 (95) yds / 73 (87)m, Color B: 40 (50) yds / 37 (46)m.
Samples Shown: On Sarah: Slouchy length in colors: Color A: Big Birdie in color Frog Rock, Color B: Tod Worsted in color Kitten.
On Bob: Beanie length in colors: Color A: Tod Worsted in Cinder, Color B: Elmer Tweed Worsted in Cork.
VARIATION: Knit a non-fluff version using The Lamb & Kid Tod Worsted paired with Dimond Laine Elmer Tweed Worsted. Our beanie-sized sample shows Color A as Tod Worsted in Cinder with Color B as Elmer Tweed in Cork. We knit with the same needle sizes and to a similar stitch gauge. Your row gauge will be more condensed though, so where the pattern reads “Repeat Pattern Rounds 1-8…” you’ll knit four more times for a beanie with this yarn combination and six more times for a slouchy hat.
Gauge: Approx. 18 sts/24 rows = 4” in mosaic houndstooth stitch in the round, blocked.
Suggested Needles: Needles listed are suggested. Always take time to swatch. Gauge Needle: US 8 (5mm) 16” circular and double-point needles. Ribbing Needle: US 6 (4mm) 16” circular needle.
Tools: Darning needle; 3 markers, including 1 unique marker for BOR.
