Coin Flip Hat by Shanalines Designs | 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.
