Boyfriend Watch Cap - Marled Loft Version

Boyfriend Watch Cap - Marled Loft Version

“Borrow it back. If you can.”

Knit this cozy, deeply cuffed cap for him. It’s handsome worn turned up for traditional nautical style, but we love it uncuffed and slouchy, too. This cap is a quick knit, which is great because you’re bound to be asked for more. We find it's a super-satisfying gift knit, too – great for guys and gals!

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. The only way to make this project even more fun is to marl two colors of Brooklyn Tweed Loft together!

With 37 great dyed-in-the-fleece colors to choose from, there are nearly endless fun combinations. Go for a subtle tonal effect, or grab two distinct colors for more active marling – we've put 12 colorways together for you here, but you can also put your own together from the Brooklyn Tweed Loft page. Karen and Pam are each on their third Watch Caps with different combinations - the potato chip of knitting: bet you can't knit just one!
