This pattern is based on one that originally appeared in the March 1876 issue of Harper’s Bazar. That version called for fine white cotton, and was most likely meant to be worn as a sleeping cap, such as the one worn in ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (aka A Visit from St. Nicholas by Clement Clarke Moore, 1823).
