Daniel Coonskin Cap (Boys)

Free Back Pack Project Bag

Here is a classic cap for little guys that is sure to inspire their imagination. It is based on the type of coonskin cap worn by Daniel Boone and other explorers of the early American frontier, but it’s knitted from eyelash-style yarn that is a blend of merino and polyamide. This cap design knits up very fast on large needles and is fun for both the knitter and the lucky fellow who gets to wear this furry creation.
