100% Wool Machine Knit Scots Bonnet Band
Scots bonnets commonly had a red and white band around the bottom. This band needs to be knit seperate from the cap since the decreasing stitches making the shape of the cap destroy the pattern of the check. This band is machine knit in Scotland of fine Scottish wool. It is intended to sew to the bottom of a Scots bonnet. The cap is currently called a "tam", but in the 18th century was known as a "Scots Bonnet". It was such a comman garment that it became a symbol of Scots, paticularly Scottish Highlanders. This band is 4 inches (10 cm) wide by 23 inches (58 cm) with a black boarder and green inside the checks.
