Kelp Cap


This cap is what Christine LeGrow imagines a mermaid would knit from the kelp that washes up on the beach near her home. Moss stitch tendrils drape the back and sides providing warmth from the cold sea winds. The body of the cap is knit in vertical sections of moss and stocking stitch. The top is finished with three more tendrils of varied lengths. It is knit with Brown Heather which, when compared to the kelp, is of a very similar colour. We all know that mermaids spend their time searching out sailors and would not want to spend their time dying wool. This concept and design is by Christine LeGrow. Hand knit with 100% wool, worsted weight.

Kelp Wrap and Kelp Wraplet


Christine LeGrow imagines that these scarves are what a mermaid would knit to keep herself warm against the cold winds of the North Atlantic. Mermaids certainly surface from time to time in search of a handsome sailor. These scarves are knit entirely in moss stitch and feature tendrils at both ends in varied lengths. This shape is very similar to the kelp that washes up on the beach. The scarves are knit in brown heather only as this colour is similar to the kelp. Each scarf is a little different, just like two pieces of kelp are not the same. These two items are the concept and design of Christine LeGrow. Two general sizes are available and listed below.

Seafaring Basque Whaler Cap

"Basque Whalers"

This cosy hand knit wool cap was inspired by stories of Basque Whalers. They were sailors from France and Spain that visited this region in the 1500's.

Archaeologists have unearthed grave sites in Labrador. One was well preserved and clothing identified included a knit wool cap.


This cap is designed by Christine LeGrow.  Most pictures of the Basque Whalers were artist's renditions of how they imagined a Basque Whaler's voyage at sea. These drawings were usually black and white. Therefore, Christine chose the colours as she had seen in pictures. The style is an interpretation of how Christine thought this cap might look and is not based on an actual cap.

This cap is knit in moss stitch and stocking stitch sections. It's style has a flip over top attached to the side. This is where the handmade tassel is placed.

It is best to wear this cap with the tassel covering an ear.


Colour as shown: Medium grey with dark grey accents. Item code: BW


Size: 22 inch head circumference


Retail Price: $42.00
