This classic, close-fitting cap exhibits equal parts sailor’s savvy and skateboard cool. We designed it in a fine gauge yarn in single rib, with a comfy tubular cast-on and nifty mitered decreases. We love the watch cap in its most quintessential form, with a deep cuff. And the beanie begged for a modern color-tipped edge. Great on girls, too!
