This handsome cap in three sizes (S/M/L) will be a fall and winter favorite when knit in a bouncy, sport weight yarn of natural fibers. Worked in appealing knit/purl textures and accented with simple cable details, there is plenty to make this project fly along while keeping the knitter engaged. This design marries well with all types of yarns from solids and heathers to those with subtle gradients shifts.
Samples of Haar are knit in Bare Naked Wools Festivus Sport and Bare Naked Wools Patchwork.
