London Street Scene Hand Knit 19-26" English Cap


Hand Knit English Stripe Cap by Sara Dickfoss. Hat size 20".

This cap is an interpretation of a cap seen in the background of the 1770 Scene in a London Street by John Collet at The Yale Center for British Art. There are many other similar caps in other artwork from the 1740s to 1790s and appears to be a common type worn mostly by English landsmen and sometimes by sailors. The cap is hand knit and fulled of 100% wool into a dense, warm, water resistant 11" tall cap. The cap can be worn slightly folded over at the top or with a brim folded up. It is knit with red and oatmeal colored 2 ply yarn so the white has a natural look to it more common of the meaner sorts. Since each cap is hand made no two are alike. Pattern developed by Colleen Humphreys.

Raised, processed, spun, died, knit and fulled in the USA.
