Cap in 6 sizes, with decorative braid on band, warm double layer head band, and spiral shaping on crown. Braid
is knitted as part of the hat – no turning to pick up stitches.
The woven braid reminds me of the thick rope on the deck of the ship Princess of Acadia, on which I have
traveled many times from St. John, New Brunswick to Digby, Nova Scotia.
Fingerless Acadia Mitts in adult M and L are available as a separate pattern.
