Knitting kit 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.
This kit contains: Önling No 15, Önling No 12 and Önling No 10 and a digital pattern
