White Caps

This super-wide, super-cute headband is perfect for hiding "beach" hair and looking fresh as a daisy even though you may have sand in your bathing suit bottom. Calormetry is designed with wool in mind. Since bad hair days are not limited to winter months, I tweaked the pattern a bit by knitting it in Frog Tree's Pima Cotton which is remarkably stretchy for a plant fiber. I crocheted the Ranunculus from a pattern in Crochet Adorned and my friend Marcia added the final touches by embroidering the vines out of Double Sea Silk. Since this pattern is a good introduction to short rows, we're teaching a class in it on Sunday June 11th from 2-5.

Now if you want to see some really crazy white caps, take a look at this video which I took at the Del Mar Fair. These chickens are called White Crested Black Polish.
