18th C Striped Cap

Here is another to follow. But it's a copy of the striped cap in Zoffany's painting, with shaping copied, loosely, from the caps in the Dutch Museum.

It's an easy cap, worsted weight wool, knitted snugly, at 23-24 sts/4 inches, no felting required. It'll flop over, if made following the pattern, or you can start the decreases earlier and wear it with the point sticking up.

Photos to follow.

Testing, 1, 2, 3

I'm trying to get my Monmouth Cap up and running on Ravelry. The pattern is there, and is a free down load, you can get it here, Monmouth Cap, The Details Matter, if you are a Ravelry member. That is easy. But it's trickier for those who *aren't* Rav members! There are buttons I can put in, to link to the download, but I haven't quite figured that out, yet....

Download for non-Members (but, really, if you knit, why not join Rav???).

Now, we shall see if the links all work!

Yes, the above link does work! Clicking it grabs my download, over on Ravelry, and will download the pdf right now. Not exactly elegant, but effective. I've signed up for the beta-test feature that lets non-Ravelry members see your designs, but haven't gotten it, yet, so in the meantime, this is it.
