A darling slouch cap in eight sizes for all ages (newborn, 3, 9, 18 mos, 2T, 4T, and adult S, L), which coordinates with the Crocus Patch blanket. The garter brim ensures a snug fit to keep the cap in place, while the body features an openwork stitch pattern that emulates a crocus patch in bloom. With all rows worked on the right side of the fabric, this is a great little traveling project or beginner lace piece.
