This listing is for a knitting PATTERN; NOT for a finished item. With this PDF you will be able to create the item shown in the photos.

Make a drivers cap (scally cap) for yourself, your baby, or as a present. Pattern features a brim with snap closure detail. Makes a great baby shower gift or photography prop.

Pattern is advanced beginner level. The knitter must be able to knit in the round, pick up stitches, increase (k1fb is used), decrease, and sew read patterns for multiple sizes. Written in standard American English knitting terms. The pattern is color coordinated for sizes (for example, all newborn information is in red, toddler information is in green, etc) to assist the knitter in pattern creation.
