This hat is knit in the round from the bottom up. Beads are placed around the hat using a crochet hook. Place markers in between pattern repeats to help you stay on track. Please note that all sections are charted for your convenience.

We chose to use a local business, Beads Inc. for our sample’s beads. She does sell online, but you may also be able to find a local vendor in your area with similar beads. Just make sure that your beads have a hole large enough for the crochet needle and yarn to fit through.

The Tourmaline Hat is available as part of e-book Chroma, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
