This super-quick wooly cap or headband in six sizes (XXS/XS/S/M/L/XL] will be a go-to staple in those last weeks before the holidays, but also a fun, portable project any time of year. Knit in worsted weight wool for a handsomely textured headwarmer, perfect for the guys on your list. The bold motif is a snap to learn and execute, making this a good beginner project.

Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
