After designing the Zimushka mittens I was still wanting to explore ideas with the same stitch motifs and felt that a matching cap would be fitting.
The cap perfect for both newbie and seasoned cablers alike. The cable patterning beautifully highlights a solid worsted weight yarn. The fabric has good elasticity and fits a range of adult head sizes comfortably.
