Pink Power Hat

Pink Power Hat

Materials:
1 skein Red Heart Worsted weight (Medium:4) yarn color: Pretty ‘n Pink
Size US8 (5.0) 16-inch circular knitting needle.
Size US 0 (zero) (3.25 mm) crochet hook
81 beads with center hole large enough to get tip of crochet hook through, style/color of choice.
1 row marker.
(8 stitch markers of a different color than your row marker, if desired)

Abbreviations:
dyo = drop the yarn over from the previous row.
tbos, sl = thread bead on stitch, slip stitch. Insert the crochet hook through the center of the bead, hook the next knit stitch and pull it through the bead, then slip that stitch onto the right needle. Continue on with the pattern. Dropping the yo provides enough slack to allow the bead to be threaded over the following knit stitch and for that stitch to be knitted on the next row without the work puckering.

Note: This has a 9-stitch pattern repeat. You may wish to place a marker at 9-stitch intervals to help you keep track.

Body:
Cast on 80 stitches, join to knit in round.
