Richting is the first pattern to be released in a collection that was inspired by my summer bike tour to the Netherlands. All of the designs work great for active pursuits while being stylish enough for everyday wear.

This warm, yet lightweight cap fits perfectly under a bike helmet to keep you toasty on the road. The textured stitch pattern flows like the currents it’s named after, and with a pop of contrast color at the hem it looks dashing off the bike, too. A simple and interesting combination of knits and purls, the pattern works well for women or men. Charted and written instructions.
