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 font and photo captions, for those who need large print.
