The Abernathy Cap is an adorable little unisex hat that is quick to knit up and works beautifully with variegated yarns or in a solid colour. It is begun at the crown, with eyelet increases in a circular pattern, then simple stockinette stitch to the brim. Garter stitch brim & I-cord ties finish this vintage style cap off sweetly!

I was 4 when my grandmother taught me to knit. I have since enjoyed all sorts of needle work; crochet, cross stitch, needlepoint, quilting. However, my love is knitting and designing seamless and classic garments for children :)
