Cool Weather Knitting: Watch Cap (free pattern)

September marks the end of warmer days and the beginning of chilly nights.  As we bring our heavy clothing out from storage , we similarly put aside our lace-weights, place thicker yarns on our needles and frantically work on clothing and accessories to keep us and our loved ones warm and cozy.  The first of these items which is something that gets a lot of use until about early and maybe late spring is a watch cap.  There are a lot of versions online– and I have a couple that use a super bulky weight yarn which takes no time  to knit at all.  One watch cap has a folded brim and the other version doesn’t.  Best of all, both versions are free!  I’ve posted the pattern below both in text and PDF format.
