Boyfriend Watch Cap - Local Color Cascara Merino Version

Boyfriend Watch Cap - Local Color Cascara Merino Version

"Positively brilliant in this yarn."

Knit this cozy, deeply cuffed cap for him. It’s handsome worn turned up for traditional sailor style, but we love it uncuffed and slouchy, too. It's a super-satisfying gift knit – great for guys and gals!

For our latest Cap we chose Local Color's squishy aran-weight Cascara Merino in muted natural plant dyes - perfect for hat and accessory projects where the yarn gets to be the star, plus no worrying about dye lots. With a cozy, snug fit this will quickly become your go-to hat, and it doesn't get more local than this! (Read more about this unique yarn here.)
