The “Pinwheel” Skull Cap was one of my first caps. The idea was born in 2006. It was an inspiration from not being able to find a hat to my liking. It is a very simple Tapestry Crochet Style Cap. If you want to substitute yarns , I definitely suggest you make a gauge swatch. TO make a larger hat, get a bigger hook or bulkier yarn. Smaller hats can be accomplished by using a smaller hook or smaller gauge yarns.

The suggested yarn is Aurora 8 from Karabella.
