    MATERIALS:

    • 1 Skein of Opal - makes 2 caps.
    • SOXIE CAP is made with Masterpiece #3706
    • MARY LOU CAPS are made with Crocodile III-#17 and Masterpiece #3707
    • Set of 5 - Size 3 dpns.
    • Several markers to mark decreases. Tapestry needle

    GAUGE: 7 inches = 1 inch in stockinette stitch

    SIZE: Fits most ages.

    DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY: Easy. Some experience with dpns helpful.

    BEGIN CAP:

      Instructions are for all three caps. Cast on 104 stitches, divide stitches evenly and place
      on 4 dpns. Join yarn to form circle being careful not to twist stitches. Work a K2, P2
      ribbing for 3 inches. Then knit all rounds for 4 more inches.

    BEGIN DECREASING FOR TOP OF CAP:

      ROUND 1: *Knit 11, K2tog. Place marker to indicate decrease. Repeat from * around.
      ROUND 2: Knit all stitches around.
      ROUND 3: *Knit to 2 sts before marker, K2tog. Repeat from * around.
      ROUND 4: Repeat Round 2.
      Repeat Rounds 3 and 4 until 6 stitches remain.

    FINISHING:

      Cut yarn leaving a 10 inch tail. Thread yarn tail into tapestry needle. Sew thru remaining
      6 stitches; pull yarn tightly and tie off. Weave in yarn ends.

    I-CORD TOP ON SOXIE'S CAP: OPTIONAL

      When you have the 6 sts remaining, DO NOT CUT YARN. Instead; using 2 dpns, put remaining 6 stitches on one dpn.
      Knit I-Cord: With free dpn, knit those 6 stitches; slide those 6 sts to beg of needle and work sts from same position.
      Bring yarn around from back and rep from * until I-cord is approx. 2-1/2 inches long or desired length to tie into a knot.
      Bind off and knot as shown. Weave in yarn.
