Lora Miser designed this hat to feature the techniques described in her article “How to Merge Solid and Variegated Yarns” (part of the “Lorna’s Helpful Hints for Hand-Dyes” series) in the August 2013 issue of Knit ‘n Style. The bottom band is worked in a solid color and the crown is worked with the variegated yarn doubled first with the solid and then with itself. The result is a tweed-like multi-colored crown with neither striping nor color pooling. It is suitable for both men or women.
