The Houndstooth Lidcap Pattern
Pattern includes: Crochet Instructions/Color Pattern, Motif Color Chart
This pattern creates an hourglass-shaped flat-topped lidcap. Because of the technique involved in the Hatternique Crochet Technique, the cap will not stretch as much as a typical crocheted piece. This hat should fit somewhat tightly to the head for the hourglass shape to be created in the body of the cap. You can experiment with color alternatives and I created this design to work very easily with just about any color combination you may choose. Substituting materials (for example, wool rather than cotton) should be tested for sizing and appearance.
