Hand Stitched Plaid Wool Cap

This wool cap was based on pattern from the book "Medieval Taylors Assistant". This project was a complete after thought. I used a plaid wool blanket to mock up a cassock for a Friar's robe I was making. After I finished the hood, I fell in love with the wool material and didn't want to waste any of it. I kept the scraps and had to create a project so that I could use the cabbage and not let it go to waste. The hat was made from four pieces of wool and completely hand stitched using a combination of stab stitches and back stitching with 100% linen thread.
