For this distinctive cap, we are using Ulster 1000 Linen in yellow with white for contrast. This darling cap has a side button chinstrap and a button-on brim for extra styling -- just the opportunity for practicing hand-stitched buttonholes! The little cap will frame your baby boy′s face with style sporting ladder hemstitched bars surrounded by satin stitched bars and arrowheads.
