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.Suggested Yarns:
