1840s nightcap

Nightcaps were being discussed over at Crative Living last autumn, and stangely enough (due the X files music.................) a pattern appeared in the Fall issue of Knitty, so naturally, I'm having a go. The pattern is a rework by the lovely Franklin (, and a nice to knit one so far. The cotton I'm using is from my stash - some fine Egyptian cotton rescued from a charity shop a couple of years ago. It's a bit finer than the one used in the pattern, and the result is more drapey, and I'm hoping not too floppy in the end.
