Charlotte Cap sample in Snowberries knit and photographed by Justina McBride
The Charlotte Cap features an offset motif with a lace panel bordered by simple cables, which combines a touch of elegance with cozy winter comfort. This pattern is great for solid, tonal, or tweed yarns that really allow the design to pop, but it can also be fun in speckled or multi colors. Knit with worsted weight yarn, this is a great weekend or evening project. This pattern includes written directions for one size, with two finishing options: regular hat or messy bun hat. Tips for customizing the finished circumference and height are given. A chart is also included for the lace and cable motif for those that prefer this over the written instructions.

All Hypnotic Yarn is hand dyed with high-quality, professional grade dyes by Cheryl in her New Hampshire studio. Studio is smoke free and pet friendly. All dye is properly set and yarn thoroughly washed and rinsed, however it is normal to see some slight bleeding of color for the first wash or two. Primarily with neon, red, and sometimes teal dyes. Colors in photos are as accurate as possible; however colors may vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
Colors may vary between skeins, even within the same dye bath. Please purchase enough to complete your project and consider alternating skeins in multi-skein projects. .
