Colorful caps

cap 1Warm wool hats and caps

In 2012 I started with a cap project. The caps are mend to be used on a special occasion. I made a lot of knitted caps in just a few weeks, each cap is unique. I will introduce some of the caps on this  page.

The  first cap I made from mixed yarn and wool was adopted by a friend of mine. She wanted a warm cap, for the winter was cold and with lots of snow. Because  there was  a lot of yarn I made also a second cap.

The pattern I used is very simple, just alternate two stitches purl with two stitches knit. Skip one stitch each round and a nice pattern will be created. Exercise first on a shred or patch, till you are content with the pattern.

Measure the head before you start knitting, make the cap  a bit smaller than the head measures. The cap will dress better.
