Katie Cap, sideview

Dateline: December 2007...Four or five years ago, I was experimenting with Zig Zag stitch, and arrived at this little cap pattern. My boutiques upstairs neighbor, a red-headed artist named Katie, bought one of the caps, and has worn it every winter since then. She recently called me because when cold weather came around, she found her original cap had gone missing, and she wanted a new one.

So...I looked in my archives and recreated the pattern, this time with optional straps that can be tied or wrapped around the neck with a snap in back. It's a quick, stylish knit in a bulky weight, and very warm. The straps will keep it from flying off your head during daredevil maneuvers.

Since Katie called this pattern back from my archives, I named it after her. Thank you, Katie! Here's your new cap!

The pattern requires size #10.5 US {6.5MM} 16" circular knitting needles {or size to obtain gauge}, and the same size DPNs to finish the top. One yarn needle, possibly a giant snap for the optional straps.

The hat uses Bulky weight yarn, or two ends knit together of DK weight.
