Aran Watch Cap

Aran Watch Cap Aran Watch Cap

Pattern: Aran Watch Cap from my favorite hat book - Hats On by Charlene Schurch.
Yarn: Lion Wool in Winter White - 1 3oz skein plus .5oz of another skein.
Needle: US 6 16" circular. (switched to 2 circulars for the last 4 rows).
Size: Medium (124 stitches around), but used the length measurements for XL to make a deeper hat.

This is a VERY simple set of patterns - a 6 row repeat that is easily memorized, with the cable turn happening on the same row as the purl ridge. The cast on is called "Yarn-Over Tubular Cast-On" which makes a great stretchy edging. After getting through the long 1x1 ribbing section, the rest just flies!

Hats are so much fun - Which one is next?

No, no I can't start another one yet... I MUST finish these fingerless gloves with flaps first. They are killing my hands because I'm using Noro Kureyon on 3mm needles - masochistic for sure!
