Swans Island Watch Cap PDF
The watch cap historically provided a simple and functional cap that could be worn by everyone, and the Watch Cap from Swans Island definitely carries on that tradition. It is designed with a rolled up brim up to provide extra warmth around the ears and bumps up the visual interest with a simple, easy to memorize “mistake rib” texture while maintaining the classic silhouette. Mistake Rib is both charted and written out.
