Haven't you always wanted a night-cap?

I know I have! That's why I designed Abigail, a ruffled and beribboned night-cap. An old-fashioned design meets modern practicality and a bit of whimsy. The Abigail nightcap warms your head, covers your curlers, or makes a unique chemo cap. It's comfortable for sleeping, and I especially look forward to using mine when the weather turns cooler.

The project is an easy knit that takes about 230 yards of yarn. Skills required are: knit, purl, yarnover, knit 2 together, and working in the round. Gauge is not critical - any yarn and appropriate needles may be used and knit to the dimensions shown in the schematic diagram. The project is begun on dpns. When the piece becomes large enough, it is transferred onto a circular needle.

 Until next time, happy knitting!
