Created in honor of the Chinese Year of the Tiger, this hat is worked in mosaic knitting, a technique created by Barbara Walker for knitting with two colors of yarn. Unlike stranded knitting, only one color is used on each round; the stitches of theother color are slipped. This makes it much simpler to work than stranded

The slipped stitches cause the rounds to be compressed, creating a dense,warm fabric that is perfect for hats.
