The Deep Woods Toque was originally published in the Winter 2015 edition of Knitscene magazine and is my favourite pattern that I’ve designed to date. Although the end result is the same, this new version of the pattern has been updated with a few minor changes, such as rewording for clarity, a second larger size, and a new more subdued colour option. Madelinetosh’s Merino Light yarn and Unicorn Tails might seem very fine, however they work up in to a warm and lustrous fabric. You’ll be kept nice and cozy as the stranded colour work acts like a second insulating layer, and the doubled up brim is sure to keep the wind out of your ears.
