Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 378 – Lace-Topped Cap

When I designed this hat, my goal was to make a fitted cap with an easy-to-memorize lace repeat and a deep ribbed brim – something like the Wasabi hat but a little more dainty. It didn't take much swatching with Liberty Wool Light for me to pick a stitch – the yarn is beautiful in most stitch patterns.

About three nights later I was weaving in the ends of this hat, very pleased with the finished piece and also pretty tickled that it only took a few days to knit. Sometimes the quick projects can be the most satisfying. Whip one up for yourself to have a trans-seasonal hat ready to wear.

The Yarn

Liberty Wool Light
100% washable wool

Best-selling Liberty Wool was begging for a finer weight counterpart – its machine-washability and vibrant color changes lend themselves beautifully to shawls, scarves, socks and fine-gauge garments. Liberty Wool Light is an outstanding sport-weight version of the perennial favorite with the same washability. Available in colorful prints and solids!
