Quincy Cap

quincyJared Flood‘s wonderful new knitting book, “Made in Brooklyn,” is filled with updated classic designs.  Some of them, like Quincy, seem inspired by Elizabeth Zimmermann (a knit designer Flood admires).  The regular reader of my blog knows I admire EZ too.  Quincy is constructed of garter stitch, “I-cord” borders  (we are too politically correct to call them “idiot cords” anymore), and mobius construction.  A mobius is a mathematical surface with only one side, formed by giving a half twist to a rectangular strip.  Much of Flood’s work has a strong sense of sculpture.  It will take even an experienced knitter a good bit of time to figure out how this was knitted.  It is a wonderful pattern, knitted here in Lamb’s Pride Brown Sheep Bulky.
