.. of Scottish Caps !
Above photographed folded, and with toories not tied on in order to show how one might have several colors handy & tie on for the occasion. The original Dicey Cap, making it’s pattern debut back in this post, knit with Jamiesons Shetland Spindrift in natural color “Shaela” .
And one in Jamiesons natural “Sholmit” ( which I think may be my favorite grey of all Spindrift greys.)
And one in Jamiesons natural color “Shetland Black”
( more of a brown black, and has lots of lovely flecks of grey in it.)
So there you have it, a stack of Dicey Highland Caps ready to be wrapped & stashed under the tree, three weeks ahead of Christmas. How is your gift-making coming along ?

I haven’t yet tried the pattern, but I plan to now that I have gotten a wonderful delivery of my favorite colors of Knit Picks Palette yarn!! I really like the colors you’ve chosen and they give me loads of inspiration!
Thank you Amy ! The thing with Palette though, is that it is a lot softer and finer than the Shetland yarns, and not as crisp or as sturdy . I just wanted to tell you in my experience, the Palette has to be knit on finer needles, and you might consider the larger size to compensate. Please message me and I can help you with modifications 🙂
Thanks for the advice Jen! I will do the larger size and see what happens…..but I will definitely let you know if I need some help.
Right, my suggestion for the larger size with either US 1 – 2.25 mm or 2.50 mm and I believe you may luck out and land right on.
If you use the US 2 – 2.75mm you’d probably do fine to knit the medium, but it might just be more fluffy and loose , which is fine, just so you know what to expect. 🙂
