Boyfriend Watch Cap - Maxima Version

Boyfriend Watch Cap - Maxima 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. Worked in a heavy worsted-weight yarn, 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. Manos Maxima, a super-soft single luscious ply of 100% merino, knits up into a warm, cuddly cap that slouches beautifully and shows off the hand-dyed tonal colorways to their best. Bet you won’t make just one!

Grab the pattern below, and then pick a shade of Manos del Uruguay Maxima. One skein is all you need.
