April 2013
DK (11 wpi) ?
20 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches
in ribbing as charted

Much like Somerset Maugham’s short stories, these two patterns are satisfyingly quick and just challenging enough to be engaging. The cuffs serve as a primer on four different kinds of make-1 increases. The cap runs you through six sorts of decreases (and you’ll feel terribly clever when you fold up the brim and see the final shape emerge). Get started now, and wear them on your next adventure.
