Pattern Details

A slouchy cap in four sizes (XS/S/M/L) that features a delicious textural mix of garter stitch stripes and cables reminiscent of the patterning seen on bocce balls. Knit in a springy sport-weight yarn, the fabric will drape beautifully but still have plenty of body to form a warm cocoon around ears and head. The easy to knit motifs and simple cable crosses make for a completely portable project that will appeal to beginning and experienced knitters alike. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape. Coordinates perfectly with the Baci Scarf or Cowl to make a terrific gift set for yourself or someone else. Finished Size: 14.5(16, 18.5, 20) inches in circumference at brim (blocked) to fit heads measuring up to 19(20.5, 23, 24.5) inches around

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it.
