This pattern works out great for any type of yarn. My son is in management and needed a nicer than "just casual" warm winter cap and also one where he can wear it out to a nice dinner (when you REALLY need warmth when out) I chose a really nice almost solid yarn in browns. You can really dress this up or down with whichever yarn you use. Knits up in no time and really looks nice!
Use many different weights of yarn so there are plenty of choices. Easy to understand instructions. There are a few places where you have to think for two seconds,
but is really obvious what they mean. I love it!
I needed a hat with a pattern that could be considered historical from the 1800's. This pattern fit the bill. It's really easy, and because I have to make 15-19 of them... I'm teaching myself to throw Continental so it will move along quickly. What a great project to put that in motion. Cascade 220 is a perfect yarn for this project.
