- Sport weight yarn scraps
- No. 7 (4.5 mm) circular needle (16") and one set of No. 7 dpn.
Using an invisible cast on method, cast on 84 sts. Knit one row. Join
and work in rounds, changing colors at random until piece meas. about 5"
less than desired total length (probably about 14-16"). Insert occasional
groups of four or five purl sts. for variety if desired. Work crown as
- Round 1: *K 10, K2tog, repeat from * around (7 sts decreased)
- Round 2: Knit
- Round 3: *K 9, K2tog, repeat from * around
- Round 4: Knit
Repeat rounds 3 and 4, having one less stitch between dec's on each
subsequent dec round, unti 7 sts rem. (Change to dpn when stitches become
too few for circular needle.) Draw thread through rem 7 sts and pull tight.
Fasten off. Turn cap inside out and make sure all ends are tied tightly
and trimmed to about 2-3". Turn cap back to right side.
Now work the other end: with circular needle, take up the cast-on sts.
Work the crown same as for first side. Run tail of yarn through several
stitches and trim off. Tuck one side into the other and turn back cuff.
You can reverse the cap as desired.
