Happy Dog Cap

Description

This warm, handsome cap in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) is just what’s needed for dog walking, snow sports, and other cold weather adventures, with its wide folded brim and rich cable texture. Knit in a round, tightly twisted yarn the result for crisp stitch definition and a snug fit; for a softer texture and fit, work in a more relaxed yarn or fiber blend. The brim and body lengths of this cap are easily adjusted to create more feminine, slouchy style.
