Gridiron Cap (PDF Download Pattern)
The Gridiron Cap will keep your head warm on those cool to cold days in the Stadium. It has been created in Team Colors to show your allegiance as you cheer your team on to victory.
Instead of knitting it from the bottom up, or the top down, the cap has been created horizontally. It is joined with Kitchener stitch. The welts are alternating rows of knit and purl and the wedges shape the cap with German Short Rows. Have fun making it, wearing it and may your team win!
