Shore is a ribbed watch cap with a subtle, Art Nouveau-inspired pattern of cascading diagonal cables. The allover ribbed texture gives this hat a snug but stretchy fit, and its understated, classic style flatters both men and women, making it a great gift knit. This design is knit in the round, and includes an optional tubular cast on and two style variations for the ribbed brim. Version A is a modern beanie with a single brim, while Version B has a longer brim to be folded over and worn in the classic watch cap style.
Sample shown is knit in Will-Ewe Farm Yarn Cormo; your favorite worsted or light worsted-weight yarn may be substitute. Version A requires approximately 165 yards, Version B requires approximately 220 yards.
Cable pattern instructions are provided both in charted and written format. Instructions are provided for optional special techniques including tubular cast-on and cabling without the use of a cable needle.
