Striped cap for cool weather. Knitted in the round with hanging “stop lights.” This cap was inspired by my son Charlie’s love for car and truck buttons. He found them in one of the knitting stores he often haunts with me. He asked for a cap and this is what I came up with! My favourite part are the “stop lights”. They swing wildly when he runs or in a good gust of winter wind. He loves it! So do his school friends!
