Boyfriend Watch Cap - Maai Pebble Version

Boyfriend Watch Cap - Maai Pebble Version

“Borrow it back. If you can.”

Knit this cozy, deeply cuffed cap for him, or her!  This is the pattern we turn to again and again - handsomely styled turned up in traditional nautical style, but we love it uncuffed and slouchy too.  (The ribbed cuff is nice and deep so you can fold it a long way up without the wrong side of the stockinette stitch crown showing.)  The three-part top decreases add a crisp detail and finish.

Now let's talk about the yarn. Shibui Maai is a bouncy, chainette dream combination of baby alpaca and merino; Shibui Pebble is a subtle, soft, tweedy lace-weight blend. Held together and you have an over-the-top, tweedy cashmere treat for the knitter and the lucky recipient!

Pick up the pattern and yarn below. We've put together some yarn color combinations; to create your own colorways, visit our Shibui Maai yarn page and our Shibui Pebble yarn page. You'll need one skein of each.
