|Apple Blossom Asymmetrical Cloche|
HERE and is called "Asymmetrical Cloche" by Mary Keenan. She has a lot of really nice cap patterns. I enjoyed making this cap so much I cast on another one right away. The yarn I used is from my Mom's stash (Thanks, Mom!). She had about 2 1/2 balls of this peachy pink Rowan All Seasons Cotton. Very nice yarn! I am trying to get over my fear of making caps out of cotton. I worry projects made with cotton will get stretched out and baggy and un-wearable. This yarn is part cotton and part acrylic, so perhaps this will be better than an all cotton cap.
I had a weird problem when I made this cap. I ended up with the wrong number of stitches after rows 8 and 9. I ended up with 72 stitches, not 63. As a result, for the decrease rounds, I k7, k2tog around and then followed the decrease instructions from there... k6, k2tog... and so on.
I had a few of the gals at my local knit shop try on my caps on Thursday. They really liked this cute cap. I was getting a little worried about my cap making lately. Some hats were turning out so big and some caps seemed too small. I was tickled that each hat looked good on someone. My confidence restored, I knit on!
