Hats are a great place to test funky colors. You don’t have to buy much yarn and almost everyone owns a black coat that will match their colorful hat!
Carmi is a standard brim-up hat pattern with texture and stripes and checkerboard colorwork. Four sizes are provided (child’s through adult large) and each has a deep and shallow option giving a total of 8 sizing options. On top of all that you can work three different color combinations! The mix and match opportunities are limitless! Depending on the sizes you chose to knit you can get two or three hats from three skeins.
