When your brain could do with a boost, your ears feel chilly, and your head feels like it’s missing that special something, a Thinking Cap is exactly what you need to get your neurons firing and your dreams flowing, all the while keeping you toasty and warm.
Perfect for the whole family, Truly Myrtle's Thinking Caps come in three sizes to fit a range of heads and personalities.
Have fun playing with colour combos and plump, soft yarn, to create hats that everyone is keen to wear.
The pattern includes a couple of simple Thinking Cap variations, both using just two colours of yarn, so you can easily create quite different Thinking Caps with the same two colours. Add a pom-pom to make your Thinking Cap even more unique.
Including charted and written instructions, Thinking Cap is a simple colourwork knit that’ll fly off your needles.
Perfect for experienced knitters, and beginners eager for a challenge.
