patternSleek and seamless!
Thinking Cap by Churchmouse is inspired by a read-to-wear Italian cashmere cap.  
The super fine fabric is doubled at the cuff with a tiny joining welt for extra warmth. The cool welt can be popped with a fun contrast color. 
It's knit using fine gauge yarn such as Pebble or Pure Cashmere
Yes - the needles are tiny and the details a little fussy but it's worth it!


Approx. 19”/48cm around x 10”/25 cm long; fits 20-23”/51-58cm head.


Approx. 365 yds/334m of lace-weight yarn (includes approx. 15 yds/14m for welt). Note: Choose a yarn that has a little woolly structure and soft drape.
Plus 5 yds/m smooth fingering-weight waste yarn for provisional cast-on.
