a watch cap for a boyfriend
So I knit Kyle a hat at one point, but it was a teal color that was a bit too much on the green side …. it was also made out of 50/50 alpaca/wool so it’s super warm. Seeing as he lives in LA, something a bit lighter would be more functional. So I made him this watch cap (which fits me because I have a big head and a lot of hair):
I knit it out of pretty much my favorite yarn ever, Berroco Vintage. Wool/Acrylic/Nylon blend, super soft, washable, great colors. A much more manly color and fit. The pattern is from Bruce Weinstein’s great Knits Men Want. I’m determined to knit most of the patterns from that book for him. (But not a sweater. This I know. Not yet anyway.) The picture was taken above New Mexico on an airplane as I as headed out to LA to spend a week with him (d’awww).
Now I’m casting on another in Berroco Ultra Alpaca for my friend Scott (what color? black. “forever black, forever alone” so he says). It’s a quick knit and a great on-the-go project.
