The Design

"Sailor style or slouchy—handsome either way!"

Knit this cozy, deeply cuffed cap for him—and then borrow it back! It’s handsome worn turned up for traditional sailor style, but we love it uncuffed and slouchy, too. We’ve made the ribbed cuff nice and deep so you can fold it a long way up without the wrong side of the stockinette stitch showing. Plus, this cap is a quick knit, which is great because you’re bound to be asked for more.

The Boyfriend Watch Cap is plush and wonderfully warm in Blue Sky Fibers Extra. This yarn goes the extra mile in everything from its bountiful yardage and additional grams—unusual in an Aran-weight skein—to its hearty, springy twist. This alpaca-merino blend is fantastically versatile and so much fun to have on your needles.
