The perfect pattern for those left-over bits of White Buffalo, Prairie Wool or Country Roving that are hanging around!
One hat, with the fold-over rib takes approx 3/4 of a wheel.
Notes on the Pattern: The toques are knitted circularly to eliminate the bulk of seams. Knit them plain or choose one of the charts to personalize your toque. Sizes shown, Natural colours, large, red toque, medium. Toques could be knit with 7mm for ribbing and 8mm for body. This will make a slightly looser knit but the yarn can handle it and will give a greater range of fits.

Gauge: 10.5 stitches to 4 inches in stockinet using 7mm needles
Sizes: There are 3 sizes, Small, Medium and Large, the smallest will fit the average child’s head.
