Thinking Cap Pattern


Brand Churchmouse Yarns

The Thinking Cap is one of those patterns that creates a finished product you would think is store-bought. Knit at a fine gauge, a doubled cuff ensures your ears will stay warm, while a small joining welt gives you the opportunity to add a contrast stripe. Knit a tweedy version in Shibui Knits Pebble, or try for a solid effect with Cima – the result is worth the tiny needles.
