Charlie's Creature Cap

September 2011
13 stitches = 4 inches
in stockinette stitch
US 11 - 8.0 mm
Child, adult

Playing with sock toe increase placement long ago, I discovered that if the increases are lined up as they are in this hat, you get very nice ears. When my grandson Charlie was born, I used this trick to knit him a creature cap, which you see here. It also has earflaps with whiskers at the ends.

Charlie’s Creature Cap is sized for both children and adults, and makes a great Mom and child matched set, or Dad and child, or Mom, Dad, and children. Or anybody, really!
