Use your leftover fingering yarns to create a ‘fake beaded’ reversible hat. Just a few grams of yarn is enough for a single stripe. A little larger leftover ball of 35 g yarn is enough for background color.
The hat is reversible and it can be also worn the striped smooth stockinette side out for a more colorful choise of headwear.

The instructions have only one size, but the hat can be made smaller or larger by different gauge. Denser gauge gives smaller size.
Small - 29 s and 42 rounds for 4”
Medium - 27 s and 39 rounds for 4”
Large - 25 or less and 36 rnds for 4”

The pattern has two options for motifs, circles/blocks or hearts. You can choose either or dowload both patterns.
