Short rows shape the asymmetrical brim of this 1920s-inspired lace cap, which frames the face with gently scalloped garter stitch before opening into simple Fir Cone lace. Knit to three possible lengths to create just the right volume of slouch for your desired silhouette—it’s modeled in the longest size here. The Fir Cone cap was born as a companion piece to the Haro crescent shawl, published as part of Brooklyn Tweed’s Wool People 10 collection. Half a skein of Plains is enough to knit the cap in the longest size.

Circumference: 19 1/2” (49.5 cm) — fits most adult heads; modeled with 3” negative ease.

Height: 6 3/4 (8 1/4, 9 3/4”) (17, 20, 25 cm)
