Nothing fancy. I whipped this up on the fly to test out the new 16" circs and to experiment with creating a pattern of holes using a combination of increases and decreases.
I also used the decreases to create a sort of swirl pattern on the top.

I tried out the two circs method for doing the decreases once it got too small for the single circ and have to say that I really liked it. That may well become my favorite small diameter technique.

VERY cool. I really like those swirls.
Not sure I understand how you say to do it though. I'll have to re-read what you did a couple times (takes me a while to 'get it'!).
GREAT WORK! :thumbsup:

The swirl is actually easy to do (once I figured it out :rofl:)

Just do the decreases using a SSK decrease and it will create that shift to the left that causes the swirl. What I did for the flattened swirl top was to do a SSK decrease in eighths around (divide the total number of stitches by 8) alternated by a straight knit round, all the way down to a final 8 stitches which I threaded and pulled.

So for the initial 88 stitches I would do a SSK, and K9 then SSK K9, around (88 divided by 8 = 11). Next decrease round would be 80 divided by 8 =10 so SSK, K8, etc.

Hope that makes sense.

Very nice! You'll have to publish your pattern!

I must say that I am so impressed with your progress. What a joy to watch a new knitter accomplish new skills and grow in confidence. I well-remember your angst over that first scarf.

Nicely done!

Ok, I wrote the pattern (as well as I could) and published it on Ravelry. It's called "Skullcap Beanie". Let me know if I need to re-write any of it. It's my first pattern and may not be written clearly enough.

I like your cap Mason. I got your pattern off of your bolg. I'm making one for myself. It'll look good with the locks that I'm growing.

Thanks Mason. I copied your pattern so I can make my dd one. She does not like the regular knitted caps because she has short hair and says she looks like a person who is on Chemo when she wears them. So this one I can make shorter and her hair will show. She will thank you too.:woot:
