Red Cap is a thoroughly evil creature. He is a short, stocky old man with long gray hair and claws instead of hands. He lives on the Scottish Border in ancient ruins of castles, especially in those with a bloody history of war and murder. He owes his name to the fact that he wears a red hat, which is colored by the blood of his victims. But fear not, for you will not need blood to keep this cap red, just knit it out of brightly colored wool and the deep ribbing will keep your ears and head warm even on those soft, misty days.

This hat is worked in the round from a chart.
