Easy Watch Cap With a Twist

from Lenas's Legacy Hand Knits
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Easy Watch Cap With a Twist
Easy Watch Cap With a Twist
Easy Watch Cap With a Twist
Easy Watch Cap With a Twist

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Cast on, knit, purl, bind off
  • Knit rounds with circular and double pointed needles

Pattern Description:

The Watch Cap, or Watchman's Cap is warm, fits easily into a pocket or purse and looks great. I've taken this classic and given it a new twist.

If you can knit in the round with circular and double pointed needles, you should find this an easy and quick knit.

I re-designed the hat to fill a request for warm hats to donate to people in need. I hope you'll use my pattern to keep a needy person warm this winter.

I want you to enjoy your knitting experience and end up with a terrific hat, so as with all my designs, I'm available to answer any questions you may have as you work up the design.

NOTE: Thanks to my husband Mike who was a very willing, cheerful and enthusiastic model.
