This is an easy and quick slouchy hat knit using mosaic colorwork. Mosaic is a simple technique where you only use one color each round, perfect for a first colorwork project.

I designed and knit the first version of this hat for a challenge in Ravelry Nerd Wars in June 2012. The challenge was to knit something inspired by that month's transit of Venus, when the planet Venus passed in front of the sun. The square motifs represent the sun and the dot in the middle represents Venus transiting across the sun.

I learned to knit from my mom as a child, but didn"t stick with it. In 1995 I quit my career in electronics and moved from Texas to Oregon to attend graduate school at Oregon State University. That first dark and rainy winter I realized I needed an indoor hobby (besides TV and chocolate). Over the winter holiday break, I checked out some books from the local library, bought some needles and yarn, and re-taught myself how to knit.
