I think it's a toque

Introducing the Irish Hiking Hat that I would like to Canadian-ize as the Irish Hiking Toque (or tuque), eh?  Much better.    I don't have a link for you but you can get the pattern from ravelry if you have an account.   (hint: sign up for an account :)

On the needles last week and now my head has a warm, wooly cover for the frigid prairie temperatures which have settled in on us.

It was knit up in Patons Classic Wool Merino in a neutral shade to match a scarf and mitts that my sister gifted to me awhile back.  Kind of ironic that I am talking about gifts given, while I knit for myself.  Where are my priorities for the festive season.  Really, I should be concentrating on all those cast-on gifts that will be due in just over 3 weeks.  Eek...is it true? Christmas is only 3 weeks away!??!  Let the meltdown, I mean countdown begin.


  1. I just ordered yarn for a birthday present for my husband and this hat may just be the ticket.

  2. Simone, if you are going to make it for your hubby I would lengthen both the ribbing by another inch and also add in another set of cables. I wouldn't mind my hat being a bit longer in the ribbing at the very least.


I love reading your comments
