This rustic Canadian Slouchy Toque is a great knitting project for any advanced beginner! With traditional Canadian colors featuring the iconic maple leaf, this hat is simply Canadian! Worked flat using the intarsia colorwork technique, this hat is knit bottom up starting with a broken rib before the 40 row chart and followed by crown decreasing. The hat is then seamed up at the center back.

This pattern can also be purchased as a 3-piece collection from thecraftyjackalope.com
