The Design

"A light, lofty, cozy classic!"

The Ribbed Watch Cap is a favorite Churchmouse Classic. The single rib texture exudes equal parts sailor savvy and skateboard cool! The tubular cast-on is nice and comfy and the nifty, mitred decreases make for a neat finish. And with a nice, deep cuff, it’s especially cozy!

We’ve knit this version of our classic watch cap in Blue Sky Fibers Woolstok Light. Strong, sturdy, and gently plied, this fingering-weight yarn is spun from the fleece of Peruvian Highland sheep. It gives a lofty lightness and soft hand to your hand-knit fabric. And that lovely, heathered color palette inspired by the craggy, unspoiled terrain of Peru.

Errata & Clarifications

KNITTER'S NOTES
Kit notes that in her experience, working the double decreases up close on small double-points, is (not to put too fine a point on it) 'vigorous'. Make sure you use a good strong set of double-point needles. And remember to—as always—stop every so often to stretch.
