Short Description: This soft stocking cap in nine sizes knits up quickly in sport or light DK yarn to fit just about any family member, including the wee babes. Worked entirely in simple knit/purl sts and decreases, the texture mix can easily be varied from one to another. For maximum slouch and minimum weight, choose a very softly spun yarn composed of fine fibers. For snug fit, go down one size. Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and elasticity.
