This is, by far, a favorite pattern of mine. Designed by StacyJoy Elkin, you can find it here. It is not a typical watch cap pattern, but has an interesting construction, as well as a long evolutionary history – StacyJoy has modified and improved it over the years. I’ve made it a number of times, and the recipients have really enjoyed getting it, wearing it, and having it forever. The knit-in-back construction seems to make it particularly strong – certainly, the stitch doesn’t get lost after numerous washings. So, if you need a hat for a special guy (or gal, I wear one, too!), this is one worth doing more than once!
