15th to 18th Century Monmouth Cap Pattern
Pattern By: Mara Riley
Made in the USA
Monmouth caps were originally named for the area of Wales next to the English border that produced large numbers of them and were worn by laboring men and sailors. Monmouth caps were sometimes referred to as Kilmarnock cauls or more commonly later on watch caps. This pattern includes knitting instructions for basic 15th to mid 18th century Monmouth. Because of the stretch of the fulled wool one size fits most people. This pattern requires a set of 4 size 10 double pointed needles and about 175 yds. (1 1/3 skein) of brown or red sheep bulky yarn or equivalent.
