A darling cap in eight sizes for all ages (newborn, 3, 9, 18 mos, 2T, 4T, and adult S, L), which coordinates with the Crocus Patch blanket. The garter brim ensures a snug fit to keep the cap in place, while the body features an openwork stitch pattern that emulates a crocus patch in bloom. With all rows worked on the right side of the fabric, this is a great little traveling project or beginner lace piece.

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

Sample shown is knit in Bare Naked Wools Breakfast Blend Fingering Yarn, color Oatmeal
