The Design

"Sailor’s savvy."

This classic, close-fitting cap exhibits equal parts sailor’s savvy and skateboard cool. We designed it in a fine gauge yarn in single rib. The tubular cast-on is nice and comfy, and the nifty, mitered decreases make for a neat finish. We love this watch cap in its most quintessential form—with a deep cuff.

We knit this version of the Ribbed Watch Cap in Brooklyn Tweed Peerie—a wee, woolly, worsted-spun wonder of a yarn. 100% American merino wool, sourced from herds in Nevada and Utah, is spun into a fingering-weight yarn in Maine. The snug twist and 4-ply construction of the strand—and the merino fiber itself—has a bouncy strength that’s enhanced by being worsted-spun. The resulting, dense strand makes the one-by-one rib of our Watch Cap stand out with crisp precision!

Errata & Clarifications

Knitter's Note: 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.
