Knitting pattern for Winter Pastel Cap by Pastelkollektivet

Pastel Winter Cap is a knitted cap and an easy and relatively fast knitting project in stockinette sts. The cap has an i-cord edge all the way around, which enables you to adjust the size of the cap, while you wear it.

Here the cap is worked in Önling No 15, No 10 and No 12, which is a strand of merino, one strand of silk-mohair and one strand of wool/cotton held together. The result is a soft and warm cap, and with the different strands of yarn, there is great opportunity to play with colors, to get an interesting color profile. 

The pattern is a PDF file. Immediately after purchase you will be able to download the pattern directly from the purchase confirmation page. You will also receive an e-mail with a link to your pattern, and the pattern will be available here at the site via your personal account - so remember to create an account :-) Read more about digital knitting patterns here.

Sizes: 1 (2) 
Size 1 works for a head measuring 56 cm or less (1) and size 2 works for a head measuring more than 56 cm (2)

The cap measures 14 (16) cm measured from the toppen and down to the bottom edge, when lying flat. The circumference of the cap is approx 52 (54,5) cm , when it is tied tightly. It is adjustable, as it is tied around the head with an i-cord chain.

Procedure: The cap is worked in stockinette sts with 4 strands of yarn held together. The crown and the brim are worked separately followed by attaching the knitted brim to the crown. You will need a curved brim. This model fits a standard brim - see measurements on the last page of the pattern. I found a cap in a secondhand store, tore it open, and used the curved brim from it.

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
