The Design

"A go-to for snowy days!"

This cozy, deeply cuffed cap is a oft-revisited Churchmouse favorite. When it’s worn turned up, the doubled fabric is so nice and cozy, but we love it uncuffed and slouchy, too! We’ve made the ribbed cuff nice and deep so that you can fold it a long way up without the wrong side of the stockinette stitch showing. And it’s a quick knit—which is great because you’re bound to want to knit another!

Our Boyfriend Watch Cap gains a fun, Fair Isle-like touch knit in Lang Snowflake! This bulky-weight yarn is a clever concoction of cotton, alpaca, nylon, and merino wool. A special spinning and dye process creates a fluffy texture and self-patterning sequence that’s reminiscent of stranded colorwork. Each colorway fades from dark to light, to dark again. In the simple ribbing and stockinette of our cap, the sprinkling of speckles looks like snowflakes!

The Details

One size: To fit 20–23"/51–58cm head. Approx. 18"/46cm around ribbing, not stretched. To adjust the size, see Knitters' Notes tab at right.

2 skeins Lang Snowflake (126yds/115m each). Or approx. 190 yds/174m of an equivalent heavy worsted-weight yarn. Sample shown in color 26.

US 8 (5mm) 16"/40cm circular and double-point needles, or size to obtain gauge.
US 7 (4.5mm) 16"/40cm circular, or one size smaller than gauge needle.
3 stitch markers (1 in a different color to designate beginning of round).
Darning needle to finish.

Approx. 16 sts/18 rounds = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch, after blocking.

This cap is designed to fit a wide range of head sizes (from 20 to 23") with the ribbing stretched out to fit snuggly where folded. But if you’d like to make a larger or smaller cap, just increase or decrease your cast-on number by a multiple of 4 stitches (for the ribbing rounds) and adjust your count on the first stockinette round to a multiple of 3 (for the decrease rounds).
