Pattern: Odessa by Grumperina for MagKnits

Yarn: Rowan Cashsoft DK (57% extra fine merino, 33% microfibre, 10% cashmere, 142 yd / 130m per 50g ball)

Needles: US 4/3.5 mm circular needle, US 6/4 mm circular needle, US 6/4 mm double-pointed needles

Other Materials: Size 6 beads (about 120)

Info: I decided to make this hat for two reasons. The first was that I had some of the Rowan Cashsoft left from another project. The second was because I wanted to give knitting with beads a try. This was an easy project and it knit up in no time at all. I think it only took about 4 - 6 hours total. I still have some more Cashsoft left and am considering making another one. I have also received a lot of compliments everytime I wear this.
