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!
