    "KITTY" YARN
    YARN SOURCE

    BLACK FUN FUR YARN

    PINK FUN FUR YARN
    So named for it's resemblance to those worn by "Flappers" in the Roaring 20's

    MATERIALS:
    (A) 1 skein Opal Crocodile #14
    (B) 1 skein Opal Crocodile #12
    (C) 1 skein "Kitty" #607 [or sparkle yarn of choice]
    (D) Approx 3 yrds of Lion Brand Fun Fur [Black, Pink or color of choice]
    Size 7-16" Circular Needles and one set of Five Size 7 dpns [or size needed for gauge]
    Markers - Tapestry Needle
    OPTIONAL: Decorative Pin or button

    GAUGE: 2 strands Opal in stockinette - 5 sts = 1"

    SIZE: Small adult

    SKILL LEVEL: Some experience with circular knitting helpful

    PATTERN STITCH: Cap is knit with 2 strands of yarn throughout.
    RND 1: With (A) and (B) *K2, slip 2 purlwise with yarn in front. Repeat from * around.
    RND 2: Knit all stitches around.
    Repeat Rnds 1 and 2 for desired length
    OPTIONAL: At random throughout entire cap, join (C) and using all 3 colors, work 2 rnds in pattern stitch.
    EDITORS NOTE: I added color (C) every 6th or 8th round.

    BEGIN CAP:
    With circ ndls and both colors (A) and (B) Cast on 92 stitches.
    Work in Pattern Stitch for 6 inches [or desired length] End after RND 1 or RND 3

    BEGIN DECREASE FOR TOP OF CAP:
    NEXT RND: Knit all sts, decreasing 2 sts evenly spaced around (90 sts)
    NEXT RND: Purl all stitches around

    DECREASE RND: Knit all sts, decreasing 10 sts evenly spaced around (80 sts) Place a marker at each dec to mark future decrease rounds.

    NEXT 3 RNDS: KNIT all sts in all rounds from now to finish of cap.
    Switch to dpns when necessary and work a DECREASE RND every 4th round until 10 stitches remain.

    FINISH:
    Cut yarns leaving a 10 inch tail. Thread yarn through tapestry needle, then thread through remaining 20 stitches; pull thread tightly and tie off. Weave in loose ends.

    ADD FUR TRIM AROUND BRIM:
    Here's how I did mine: I threaded the fun fur into a tapestry needle, rolled the brim of the cap up about an inch and loosely stitched the fun fur around the cap just above the edge of the rolled up brim. Thus creating the illusion that the fur is attached to the edge of the brim.

    ADD FUR TRIM TO TOP:
    I wound a 12 inch strip of fun fur several times around my fingers, then tied it tightly in the center with another strip of fun fur. I then sewed the ball of fun fur to the top of the cap. Then wove in all loose ends.

    OPTIONAL:
    Add a snappy little button or pen to give your cap that extra pizazz!!
