Lacy Cap Pattern

Less than half of a 6-oz skein of TLC Baby in Pinkie
Set of double-pointed needles US size 6 (4 mm)
Tapestry needle

Gauge: 18 sts per 4 inches in k2tog,yo pattern

Size: I have a large head and thick hair (about 23" around), and this cap is made to fit loosely. So if you have a smaller head or want a tighter fit, you can either subtract 4 sts for every inch (approx) difference in head size, or just use thinner yarn with a tighter gauge to get the right fit. Or you can make it as is, and it might turn out with more of a beret or tam look.

Cast on 108 sts and distribute to 3 dpns (36 on each). Join to work in the round, being careful not to twist. Work 6 rounds in k2,p2 ribbing.
Lace Pattern:
Round 1: *k2tog, yo*; repeat between*s around.
Round 2: knit around.
Repeat these 2 rounds 17 more times.
Crown Shaping:
Round 1: *k2tog, [k2tog, yo] 8 times*; repeat between *s around - 102 sts rem.
Round 2 and all even rounds: knit around.
Round 3: *k3tog, yo, [k2tog, yo] 7 times*; repeat between *s around - 96 sts.
Round 5: *k2tog, [k2tog, yo] 7 times*; repeat between *s around - 90 sts.
Round 7: *k3tog, yo, [k2tog, yo] 6 times*; repeat btween *s around - 84 sts.
Round 9: *k2tog, [k2tog, yo] 6 times*; repeat between *s around - 78 sts.
Round 11: *k3tog, yo, [k2tog, yo] 5 times*; repeat btween *s around - 72 sts.
Round 13: *k2tog, [k2tog, yo] 5 times*; repeat between *s around - 66 sts.
Round 15: *k3tog, yo, [k2tog, yo] 4 times*; repeat btween *s around - 60 sts.
Round 17: *k2tog, [k2tog, yo] 4 times*; repeat between *s around - 54 sts.
Round 19: *k3tog, yo, [k2tog, yo] 3 times*; repeat btween *s around - 48 sts.
Round 21: *k2tog, k2tog, yo*; repeat between *s around - 36 sts.
Round 23: *k3tog, yo*; repeat between *s around - 24 sts.
Round 25: *k2tog, k2tog, yo*; repeat between *s around - 18 sts.
Round 27: k2tog around - 9 sts.
Cut yarn, leaving a 6-inch tail. Use tapestry needle to thread end through remaining loops. Put tight and tie off. Weave in ends.
