Rep Rnds 1 and 2 for Beaded Rib pattern worked in rnds.

DIRECTIONS:

NOTES:
1. Hat is worked in rnds beg at lower edge.
2. When knitting in the rnd on double pointed needles (dpns), the sts need to be divided fairly evenly onto the needles. If working with a set of 4 dpns, the sts should be divided among 3 needles. If working with a set of 5 dpns, the sts should be divided among 4 needles. The total number of sts will not always be evenly divisible by the number of dpns that used – this is not a problem. Simply divide the sts as evenly as possible, and there will still be a symmetrical ‘tube’ of knitting.

With smaller double pointed needles (dpns) and C, cast on 80 sts. Divide sts onto 4 needles, with 20 sts on each needle. Place marker for beg of rnd. Join by working the first st on the left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.
