Making A Salt & Pepper Cap – Lynne Pascoe
Maximum participants: 20
This workshop will focus on knitting a traditional Salt & Pepper Cap (sometimes known as a Newsboy’s Cap). You can choose to make an adult cap or a child size and the workshop will get you well on the way to a finished cap, complete with brim, and button on top. Basic knitting skills… knit, purl, cast on and cast off are all that is required.
One skein of Briggs & Little Heritage in the colour of your choice. Ragg would be a traditional colour that is easy to see the shaping as you knit along. Threaded Grey & White is traditionally used. But you can make it in whatever colour you desire. Dark colours are more difficult to see if you are a beginning knitter.
You will need one pair each of long 4mm needles and 5 mm or a circular needle in each size or one with interchangeable ends. The cap is knitted flat so your choice of needle type. To add the button you will either need a quarter or a button of similar size.
