A soft, slouchy cap in five sizes (XS/S/M/L/XL), with bands of airy openwork that provide texture as well as a little ventilation in temperate weather. Worked completely in the round, the garter stitch brim offers a snug fit below to keep the cap in place, but gives way to softly slumping volume above for tucking up long hair; length is easily adjusted if desired.
