I used to knit for a historical reenactment group in Rhode Island. The Liberty Cap was worn (mostly by men!) during the revolutionary war period. It was almost always knit in Navy Blue wool with no decoration, other than the tassel on the end. This is a doll sized version. Enjoy!

Materials:
60 yds DK wool, Navy blue (for authenticity)
US size 5 circular needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)
1 set DP needles in same size as circular needles.
1 Seam Needle

Hat may be knit completely on DP needles, or on 11” circulars and change to DP’s during decrease rounds.
Gauge: 22 sts = 4 ins
