Ahhhh, Cashmere

This is just an everyday, no nonsense, warm cap, but it’s made from a blend of 60% cashmere and 40% merino wool.

I bought the yarn at Stitches East 3 or 4 years ago. Because of my faulty memory and/or record-keeping, I thought it was merino – if I had remembered I had cashmere, it would not have hung around unused for so long. But, I’m glad it did, because I dug it out to make a cap for a friend, and it’s perfect for him (I hope he agrees!). One of the Rainey Sisters just happened to blogged about a Marsan Cap at about the same time I was mulling over what pattern to use, and thus the stars were aligned.

I’m quite fond of the twisted rib (very stretchy) and the way the crown decreases spiral.
