I love my Posey hat, and I wanted to design another hat similar but also a little different. I used “Cotton Fine” that is much lighter than DanDoh “Linen” and great for summer. In addition, this hat is knit with beads instead of working a lace pattern. Knitting with beads is a fun way to mix it up and adorn your project. Your hat will be an original with your personal choice of beads. I chose beads of different sizes, color and texture and mixed them up in a bowl. I did not plan which bead should be next and randomly picked a bead when it was time to place one on my hat. The beads can be any type or color as long as a small crochet hook can fit through the hole. These three sample hats all use the same combination of beads. A kit is available on our website (www.dandoh.com), if you like this combination of beads.
