I've been working on this little rolled brim cap for spring. It's made from a three ply lightweight wool. I used size 2's and 4's to get a gauge of 5sts per and 6rows per inch. My knitting is quite loose so you may want to use 3's and 5's. The pattern is as follows:

Cast on 108 stitches with size smaller needle. Knit 1 row, Purl 1 row for 6rows.

Change to larger needles and work in stockinet stitch(knit 1 row, purl 1 row) for 8 inches.

Start to decrease:

knit 7, knit 2 together


knit 6, knit 2 together


knit 5, knit 2 together


knit 4, knit 2 together


knit 3, knit 2 together


knit 2, knit 2 together


knit 1, knit 2 together


knit 2 together, knit 2 together


Leaving a 12" tail run it through the remaining stitches a couple of times making the crown secure.

Sew up side.

The small cabbage rose and the garter leaf are from nicky epstein's book "knitting beyond the edge". Feel free to add your own embelishments.

The Hunny Bunny Punchneedle Pin Pattern will be available on my website
