The Clockwise Crochet Cap starts at the tippy-top and winds its way on down to the brim. The clockwise swirling stitch pattern is an easy trick using only chain and single crochet stitches. Once the increases are taken care of, the sides of the cap proceed on down using only single crochet. You can make it as deep as you wish—beanie style or covering your ears. Make the Clockwise with fingering weight yarn and size D crochet hook. The pattern is written for three sizes.
