MosaiX hats are worked bottom up starting with a clever tubular cast on.

They are worked in mosaic knitting: only 1 color is worked per round: the stitches in the working color are knit (or purled) and the stitches in the other color are slipped.Very easy colorwork 😉

Pretty, well thought decreases shape the crown and form some surprising line drawings on top of the hat.

You don’t need to print all the pages, just the one you want to make and the instructions you prefer: chart, or written instructions. Both are provided.
