This cap is comfortable, super soft, and warm, and frames the face nicely. It is knitted flat with short rows forming the crown, and grafted together in pattern for a seamless look. A few stitches are picked up at the very top of the crown, and the yarn drawn through them to gather the crown together. The 9-page pattern includes both charted and written instructions for the body of the cap, and a 4-page photo tutorial showing how to graft the stitches in pattern, as well as photos of the completed cap.

I was taught the basics of knitting, crochet, embroidery, and sewing by my grandmother when I was young. I have found that I enjoy doing a variety of fiber related crafts, and have over the years learned to spin yarn, weave, tat, braid, felt and bead. But the greatest satisfaction for me comes from using my God-given creativity to create my own designs and techniques.
