I’m thinking of adapting the Nautilus Hat pattern (which I absolutely love) into a kippah for my mom (she’s getting a Master’s in Jewish Education this year after SEVEN years of graduate school, taking one course per semester while working full time!).
Here is the pattern: http://marniemaclean.com/patterns/Nautilus/index.html
I figure it can work as a kippah because it starts from the top and knits down. I’m thinking that I will use a lighter yarn on size 2 double pointed needles so it won’t be very bulky; a worsted weight yarn kippah would certainly be a little bulky. And then I will just knit it until it is around 6 inches in diameter.
Do you think this can work? My one concern is that it may come out a little flat, and a kippah is supposed to curve to fit the top of one’s head ever so slightly.
Thanks for your advice!
