Pattern Description:

In Chinese mythology, the sky ladder connects heaven and earth, enabling gods and humans to travel between the two. The "ladder" may take the form of a high mountain, mythical tree, tower, rainbow, or cobweb. This sweet cap, in eight sizes (newborn, 3, 9, 18 mos, 2T, 4T, and adult S, L), coordinates with a Sky Ladder scarf, wrap, or blanket. Natural yarn colors enhance the finer details in the cable and lace textures throughout. The cap is knit completely in the round and makes good use of smaller yarn quantities.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
