Seedbox Cap, a fun knit!

I knit this with the BarnBox yarn, Polypay and was really pleased with how it turned out. See stitch gave a great double brim, which will be nice and warm. The cables were an interesting pattern, and I loved how they came together at the top!

Love the cables

An interesting and quick knit, the seed stitch brim is a good width, nice and warm, and fits with just enough stretch, while the cabled cap is a snug, warm fit.

Fun Project

Knitting the Seedbox Cap was a fun and quick project. I am very pleased with the results. The cap is a snug fit which will be perfect for walks along the windy beach here in Oregon.
