Mod Stocking Cap Pattern - stocking cap in DK weight yarn sized for children and adults


NOTE: This listing is for a pattern to make your own Mod Stocking Cap

My friend returned from a trip to Eastern Europe with a fabulous Fair Isle stocking cap and I thought it would be a lot of fun to make one with a less traditional color pattern and DK weight yarn. The Mod Stocking Cap is worked in the round while alternating colors and slowly decreasing. This hat is simple to make and lots of fun to wear! Pick your three favorite colors (or more - who’s stopping you?!?) and knit yourself one of these cozy accessories.
