Secundogeniture is studying in Alaska. He started in January and since he's been there, the temperatures have not gotten above freezing. I knit him one cashmere cable hat and promised him a watch cap made from the qiviuk he chose while at the LYS in Fairbanks - Inua Wool Shoppe. It's been nearly 10 weeks and I only just finished the hat.
This is The Boyfriend Hat designed by Purl Soho
1.25 skeins Jacques Cartier Qiviuk in natural brown
1.25 skeins Knit Picks Palette in bark
I especially like the look of the crown design for this watch cap. As far as colors go, I chose two nearly identical colors for a solid colored watch cap. I've already cast on for a second with matching colors as well. For a third cap, I think I'll select two slightly different colors to give it a little bit of depth.
I'll be shipping this finished object to Secundogeniture and it will arrive just as the temperatures are finally getting above freezing. Wear it well son.
