Men's stocking cap crochet

Posted by rwisniew (My Page) on

I am getting frustrated trying to find the pattern, I want. I thought I saw it yesterday, but can I find it today? No! ;-)

I want to make a stocking cap for my teenage son. There is no brim...I wonder if "watch cap" might describe it.

Does anyone know of a pattern?

Oops, crochet.

Watch cap is like a seaman's knit cap, fitting the skull snugly. A stocking cap has a very long top that sometimes is so long that it dangles to the waist. A ski cap has no "brim" and fits snugly, but maybe not as snugly as a skull cap. What is it you want?

Sounds like the ski cap, is what I am interested in. Didn't find it at Thanks, at least I know what to search for now.

Does anyone know of a pattern and a good recommendation for what brand/type of yarn to use?
