Easy Peasy Toque
As most of you probably know, I work at my LYS, Urban Yarns. Over the Christmas holidays quite a few people were looking for a simple hat pattern. A hat that wouldn’t take them too long, it wasn’t flashy with intarsia or earflaps, it just showcased a lovely yarn and knit up in a jiff. Is that too much to ask?
So I whipped up this little pattern, the Easy Peasy Toque. It’s a guaranteed winner in a 16 stitch gauge (worsted) yarn on 5mm needles. knit in the round with some simple shaping up top. To give it a little brim for warmth it starts off with a little garter stitch. The yarn pictured above is the lovely and addictively soft Malabrigo worsted. I got two hats out of one skein and it is quite reasonable priced. I couldn’t ask for more!
