Now honey, aren’t you cute as a button? This jaunty unisex cloche-shaped cap frames the face and knits up quickly in the round, creating a halo of warmth. The ribbing stretches to fit a variety of hairstyles and is snug enough to cling to your ears in a big breeze. This soft and squishy model is knit in Custom Woolen Mills Prairie Wool Soft Spun. A good, hardwearing substitute would be Álafoss Lopi, or any bulky weight yarn that knits at 3.5 sts to an inch(2.5)cm, on size 10(6mm).

Accessibility Note: This pattern offers an additional Low Vision pdf option, with Arial 24 point sans serif font in all black text and photo captions. It has no italics. All of the directions are fully written out. If there’s a chart included, there are also written instructions- the chart is not needed to complete the pattern.
