This fitted stocking cap is best described by what it doesn't need--circular needle, double point needles, or a cable needle! It is knit flat using an alternate cable technique that twists the stitches without using a cable needle. Once it is done, you seam it up the back and you are ready to go. The hat is sized to fit the average woman's head. It can be hand washed and dried flat.
If you haven't tried Willow, you should! It is a lofty, loosely spun yarn that is 94% Merino wool and 6% nylon. Because it has so much volume, it knits at a bulky gauge without much weight and the air trapped within the yarn makes for a warm fabric. It comes in heathered colors with subtle flecks of contrast color. And did we mention how soft it is?
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 11 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- single point needles in US size 10.5
- tapestry needle
