Yarn :: Dale's Heilo #5545
Quantity :: 200 g.
Needles :: 6.5 mm (10 1/2 US) circular and double pointed

Instructions for cap:
Cast on 120 stitches and join. Knit in the round until work measures 35 cm (approx 14 inches). Place a marker on each side of the work (this can be approximate since it will be felted later) and decrease 1 stitch on each side of the markers every 4th round.
When 20 stitches remain: *k2, k2tog* for one round, then thread yarn through remaining stitches and close off.

Felt the cap in the washing machine.
