Adorably warm and unusual, and using less than one skein of Primo Worsted, Winding Road is the perfect quick and luxurious gift for those on Santa’s “nice” list (and maybe even for those who have been slightly “naughty.”)

Construction Notes:
This cap is constructed by knitting a cable band which is seamed to form the brim. Stitches are picked up to knit the rest of the cap in the round.
