This Cascade Cap pattern comes in two colorways: the Natural version showcases the soft browns and grays of Shetland sheep, while the stronger colors of the Winter version were inspired by a drive across the Cascade Mountains one cold December.

Five colors are used in the Natural version; the Winter version uses seven.

The cap can be close fitting or looser depending on the gauge you choose. In the photos, the Winter version is shown at the tighter gauge, while the Natural version shows the looser fit.

Needles: Size 1 16” circular; Size 3 16” circular and double-points. Adjust needle sizes if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: marker; tapestry needle; coilless pins to mark decrease points (optional).
