Seaworthy Gansey Cap by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas

Size Guide

Knit in a tightly spun traditional 5-ply Guernsey yarn, this all-weather cap is handsome on men and women alike. The eight-part decrease rounds create a flat circular top, while a firm gauge keeps the gansey-textured crown band standing at attention for pillbox styling. Or you can pull it down low over your ears like a beanie when the wind comes up!

  • Frangipani 5-Ply Guernsey
  • Sport 
  • 26 stitches and 36 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch, blocked
  • US 2 - 2.75 mm Note: We recommend metal needles for strength as this is a vigorous knit!
  • Notions: 8 locking stitch markers (1 in a different color to designate beginning of round). Darning needle to finish. 71⁄2”/19cm diameter plate or circle of heavy cardboard for blocking (cut cardboard after hat is complete so it fits into top of cap with a little stretch).
  • 200 yards (183 m) Or approx. 400 yds/366m of a light fingering-weight sock yarn held double.
  • Medium adult: Approx. 22"/56cm around.
  • Finished Size : Medium adult: Approx. 22”/56cm around. Note: This hat is designed to fit with little or no stretching so that the sides stand straight. If you wish to increase the size a little, you can fine tune the fit with blocking. For a smaller hat, you can work to a slightly tighter gauge on a smaller needle and block to fit.
