This checker pattern reminds me of the yellow taxi cabs in New York City but the natural colors of the wool bring this design into the countryside for a quick knit that is the best of all worlds.

The cap provides a great canvas for learning to knit in the round with colorwork. Because the pattern is so simple, it can be memorized quickly and because you only knit two colors in a row and two stitches of each color at a time, you can concentrate on holding the yarns and getting an even tension without constantly looking at a chart.

For experienced knitters, this is a relaxing project that is perfect for last minute gift knitting.

Fits heads up to 21” (54cm) in circumference.
