Thinking Cap Using Shibui Cima

Thinking Cap Using Shibui Cima

"Who’d’ve thought?"

Inspired by a ready-to-wear Italian cashmere cap, we engineered our hand-knit version to be sleek and utterly seamless. The super-fine fabric is doubled at the cuff with a tiny joining welt for extra warmth. And that cool welt could be popped with a fun, contrast color. Okay, the needles are tiny and the details a little fussy, but it’s worth it—we think!

We knit this version in Shibui’s exceptional Cima. The way it’s plied looks like little pearls, which makes us love this delicate lace-weight texture all the more. Alpaca and merino are twisted tightly together, creating a supple yarn with a lovely glow and smoothly delicate drape. Kit’s knit three Thinking Caps in this fiber!

You’ll need two skeins of Cima—if you’d like that contrasting welt, pick out one skein of the main color and another skein of that fun pop. If you prefer your cap in one color, you’ll then need two skeins of your main color. For a full selection of colors, go to the Shibui Cima page.
