Cathedral Cap

Using the same Jiffy bulky yarn I used for the Wise Old Owl hat, I knit this Cathedral cap. This hat is much longer than the owl hat;  longer than I could have anticipated. Crazy, because I checked my gauge which was right on the money!

So, I decided to take out 18 rows and create my own decreasing crown by knitting only five rows, eliminating 13 rows and several inches! 

I am much happier with the hat now, and I believe it still holds the integrity of the design. I only hope I have shortened it enough, but not so much that it doesn't cover my daughters ears!

Specs: one skein Jiffy bulky yarn, slivery heather and size 4 needles
Pattern: Cathedral cap (modified)
