Watch Cap - Easier Knitting

Watch Cap
If the swirls seem overwhelming or "girlie" try the Knit it Now Watch Cap pattern.
This versatile design also has a with shaped top. The gores give great shape with minimal bulk at the crown. Each gore is worked separately ... no full-bed transfers like the Swirl Hat.
