Crisscross Caps Collection

The Crisscross Caps Collection is now available for purchase as a download, for $10.00 either on Ravelry, or directly through the blog by clicking the buy now button.

Each of the four hat patterns are also available for purchase and download individually for $3.00 each, either on Ravelry, or directly through the blog by scrolling down and clicking the corresponding buy now button .

Fast, fun and unisex, these caps, covered in ribbing and simple to knit, fun to follow cables, make fantastic last minute gifts for friends and family. Easily completed in an evening or two of knitting, this collection of patterns aims to make last minute holiday and gift knitting, at least a little bit, less stressful.

Not just for the winter holidays these hats are great for that very important birthday that managed to sneak up on you this year. Or you could even knit one or two ahead of time and stash them away to reduce last minute panic knitting.

Optimally designed for a 22″ head, these hats will easily stretch and shrink to fit a 21″ to 23″ head without distorting the cable pattern.
