This cute cap can be done either in the round or flat. The hat was a Christmas present designed by Cecily Glowik MacDonald for her co-author and friend, Melissa LaBarre, and the pattern is being made available here as a free gift to Knitting Daily readers. Read below for more information on Cecily and Melissa's forthcoming book, New England Knits: Timeless Knitwear with a Modern Twist (Interweave, July 2010).

*The Not A Feather Cap pattern does not appear in New England Knits. The pattern is a Knitting Daily exclusive.


Cherish the gorgeous and timeless appeal of America’s northeast with this irresistible collection. Inspired by autumn, winter, and spring in New England (where the savvy knitter is never far from a sweater between September and March), New England Knits delivers 25 gorgeous patterns with classic wearability and contemporary style.

New England-based designers Cecily Glowik MacDonald and Melissa LaBarre created each piece to distinctly showcase the weather, colors, and culture of the region they so love. Projects by four guest designers from New England round out the collection.

Lushly photographed, New England Knits is divided into three classic themes: Around the Town, Fall on the Farm, and Along the Coast. Within each section you’ll find beautiful multiseasonal clothes and accessories, such as cardigans for layering or scarves to warm your neck when the temperatures dip. You’ll also fall in love with soft sweaters, durable bags, cozy mittens, and more! With New England Knits, you’ll have everything you need for a perfect new England-inspired wardrobe.

It actually does not specify what the yarn weight is in pattern but I went on the Webs and Yarn Market websites and they have Classic Elite Princess as a light worsted weight.

The pattern calls for Classic Elite Princess. Once you download the pattern it gives details on page 2 under the picture.
