Ranger 2/75

Back in 2010 I blogged about a friend's grandson, Tyler, who was in the Airborne and heading to Afghanistan. Since then, his younger brother, Brent, also joined the Airborne and I made him a cap as well.  Now, Brent has gone on to be a part of the Ranger Regiment, so a request was made that I make another cap/helmet liner and I was happy to do so:


Pattern:  My own
1x1 ribbing, stocking stitch crown, fairisle lettering.

Yarn:  Cascade 220 Superwash - worsted weight
Colors #815 black and #809 red
Needles: US 7 / 4.5 mm
Started with 16" circulars, finished with double-pointed needles.

Note:  The text is RANGER 2/75 for the 2nd Battalion, 75th Regiment.
It's knitted twice around the cap.
