A light, warm cap will keep you cozy once the fall winds begin to howl and this playfully textured cap in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL) is a delicious example. Worked entirely in the round, the easy to work knit/purl panels are framed by cables along each side. The fun, unisex design works up speedily in springy sport weight yarn for a gift that will appeal to any member of the family. This project travels well and is a good choice for knitters new to cable stitch work.
