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.

Lenas's Legacy Hand Knits
Follow my blog at: I am certified as a Level 1 Master Hand Knitter by The Knitting Guild Association. My grandmother Lena taught me to knit when I was 4 years old and told me that a lifetime of knitting pleasure was her legacy to me. I love to design and knit and enter my work in competitions. I've won numerous awards and ribbons over the years and that's a lot of fun, but the greatest pleasure is the actual creative process. I specialize in Beginner and Intermediate level designs that teach new skills and promote excitement for the art that is Knitting. I think new knitters should have the opportunity to work with a well-written design that reinforces their current skills, teaches them new skills and gets a "WOW, you made that?!!?" response when showing off their completed project.
