Tracing its way through the Cascade Mountains is the infamous Highway Thru Hell, otherwise known as the Coquihalla or, as locals call it, “the Coq”. This snowbound highway roughly follows the route of the former Kettle Valley Railway, connecting the coastal rainforest of BC’s Lower Mainland with the desert climate of its interior.

This unisex toque is knit bottom up, with all-around twisted rib and a unique cable panel running up the side. The pattern includes options for two sizes and a slouchy or beanie version.
