Liberty Cap Pattern
Will fit American Girl® or other 18” doll
“I have knit for a historical reenactment group in Rhode Island for the last few years. 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.”
- 50 grams dk weight wool, Navy blue (for authenticity)
- 1 set size 5 double-pointed needles

You may knit this hat entirely on DPNs, or on 11” circulars and change to DPNs when decreasing, if desired.
