Default Cap Pattern-The Pease Greeters

Hand Knit Caps for the Troops
Please use 100% wool worsted weight yarn in dark or drab colors.
#9 or 10 circular needles, 16" works best
#9 or 10 double pointed needles (4 or 5)
Tapestry needle for finishing
On circular needles, cast on 72 sts, join the ends being careful not to twist work when joining .
Work K1, P1 until piece measures 1".
Knit until piece measures 8".
Change to double pointed needles of same size, divide 24 sts in 3 needles and knit with the 4th needle.
Round 1, knit 2 together all around
Round 2, knit
Round 3, knit 2 together, leaving 18 sts.
Cut off yarn leaving a 12' tail, thread tapestry needle, pull yarn through each stitch, remove from needles, pull tight and tie off on wrong side of work. Weave in tails from that yarn and the cast on yarn.
Please attach a small note with your name so that the soldier who receives the cap knows who made it for them, they enjoy that.
Thank you very much for your support of our troops and this project.

I will let you know where you can drop these off. I have not figured that out yet. Ha
