COIN FLIP HAT

I find myself constantly drawn to mini skeins of yarn. They are such a great way to expand my range of colors and to meet new yarn dyers. I’m also always interested in how the same set of colors can take on a different appearance.

I began experimenting with a modular garter stitch construction using mini skeins and stumbled into this whimsical design. With multiple styling options, COIN FLIP HAT seemed like the perfect name to express this quality. Flip a coin to choose how to vary stripe width and colors. Flip the hat around for a different style.

This hat is an equally great project to use a special mini skein set or to use up leftovers from other projects. This design is a blank canvas to create a unique lightweight hat for yourself or a friend. I can’t wait to see what you make.

Samples shown in May 2021 mystery yarn club color set called Dawn to Dusk.

A set of 5 20 g mini skeins is enough for any size, and it might be possible to make 2 hats from a 100 g set! Each hat requires 185-370 yd / 169-338 m (40-80 g).
