The Scaffolding Cap is a simple, worsted weight knit hat featuring a combination of knit and purl stitches, slipped stitches and cables. The straight and changing diagonal lines are reminiscent of scaffolding structures. This hat is knit in the round from the bottom up. The decreases at the crown work together with the slipped stitches and cables to form a star shape. Knit up in less than one skein of Stone Wool Cormo worsted weight yarn, this hat is a quick, satisfying knit with a variety of fun and simple techniques to keep your interest!
