This was Dad’s Christmas present. You may note that he is a bit of a ham, but we had lots of fun working on the pictures for the pattern.
This is a very classic cabled toque, not too much happening just simple cables with strong lines. I hope that your Dad (or you) likes this toque just as much as my Father.
This cap will look small when first knit because of the ribbing, but it has great stretch.
