here is the pattern
Odessa hat pattern
Plain round: *ssk, k6, yo, k2, repeat from * until the end of round.
Beaded round: *ssk, k3, BK1, k2, yo, k2, repeat from * until the end of round.
Before you begin, string 150 beads onto the yarn. As you knit, gently move them towards the other end of the ball as needed.
Using US 4 (3.5 mm) circular needle, cast on 110 sts. Join into round, being careful not to twist stitches. K3, p2 all the way around until work measures 1” / 2.5 cm from cast-on edge. K2 sts and place marker. The marker (not the tail of the yarn) is the beginning of all future rounds. Switch to US 6 (4 mm) needles. Begin Odessa hat pattern: work 2 plain rounds, *1 beaded round, 3 plain rounds, repeat from * until work measures 5.5” / 14 cm from cast-on edge.
Begin hat decreases (switch to double-pointed needles when there are too few stitches to stretch around the circular needle). Repeat each line of instructions for the entirety of one round.
1. ssk, k4, BK1, k1, yo, k2 (110 sts remain)
2. (sl1, k2tog, psso), k5, yo, k2 (99)
3. ssk, k5, yo, k2
4. sl1, k2tog, psso, k4, yo, k2 (88)
5. ssk, k3, BK1, yo, k2
6. (sl1, k2tog, psso), k3, yo, k2 (77)
7. ssk, k3, yo, k2
8. (sl1, k2tog, psso), k2, yo, k2 (66)
9. ssk, k2, yo, k2
10. (sl1, k2tog, psso), k1, yo, k2 (55)
11. ssk, k1, yo, k2
12. (sl1, k2tog, psso), yo, k2 (44)
13. ssk, k2 (33)
14. ssk, k1 (22)
15. ssk (11)
Cut yarn, leaving a tail. Thread the tail through the remaining 11 stitches, pull the hole closed and weave the tail on the inside of the hat.
