A cute, slouchy cap in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL), with a wide, tweed textured brim to frame the face. Worked completely in the round, the knit/purl brim offers a snug fit below to keep the cap in place, but gives way to softly slumping volume above.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.Suggested Yarns:
