TSA-554 Glengarry/ Scotch Cap Pattern is for two styles of Scottish Caps:
GLENGARRY: This is the more “military” of the two styles and is based on a military Glengarry. The sides of the body are deeper and the back is not closed, allowing the cap to lay flatter on the head.
SCOTTISH CAP: This is a more feminine style, with a taller body and a closed back. This allows the cap to sit on top of the head over some of the taller hairstyles. If you wear your hair in a hairnet, you may want to consider the larger size, to accommodate the hair.
Instructions are included for both styles of caps in multiple sizes and trim options such as cockades, rosettes and flat bows.

 Not only did Queen Victoria lend her name to the Victorian Era, but she influenced much of the fashions of the 1800’s. Many of these influences can be traced back to her love for Balmoral Castle in Scotland. This gave rise to many of the Scottish style caps that were shown in the periodicals.

 Fabric Requirements:
¼ yd fashion fabric: wool, linen, twill or other heavy weight cotton, satin, silk or taffeta. *
¼ yd buckram (if unable to find buckram, paste board will work)
¼ yd lining fabric
2 yds 1” wide grosgrain or satin ribbon
Trims such as feathers or 1 foot of 2” wide ribbon for simple cockade
* If your fabric is very light-weight or has no body, purchase ¼ yd of medium weight iron on interfacing. Backing your fabric with this interfacing will help give it substance and support.
We have sized the Glengarry pattern in three general sizes:
Small: Suitable for children at approx 19 – 20”
Medium: suitable for most women at 22”
Large; for most men at 24 – 25 inches.
The Glengarry has an open back which does give some leeway in sizing.
The Scottish Cap is sized in a Small approx 20 ½” and a Large approx 22 ½”
