Spice Road Cap
Prints in LANDSCAPE mode
The spice road--from China, through central Asia to the fringes of Europe--defined the route for silk and spices traveling from the east. Spice Road Cap’s wide flat front, top brim and folded turban back evoke the style of this fabled region. Unique and flattering.
Spice Road Cap is knit flat, all in one piece and shaped via short rows. Although the cap is seamed, there is no needle-and-thread sewing. Instead, the welt is constructed using slip stitches and the back seams by a three-needle-bind-off, while the lower brim is added by means of picked-up stitches. Illustrated tutorials for these techniques are included in the pattern.
