“This unisex toque is unique! It ranges in size from baby to man, is begun at the crown with Judy’s Magic Cast On and features cables that look like they run from the front of the hat, over the top, to the back. However, it is completely seamless and knit in the round! The cables are spunky and every knit stitch is through the back loop, making them pop. They are laid upon a background of reverse stockinette. The toque is intended to be deep and cover the ears.
“Mister or Missus” was inspired by one of my daughters who would speak to her unborn sibling I my belly. We didn’t know if he was a boy or girl and she had a cute little way of saying :”Hello there Mister or Missus!”
“What a perfect name for a hat that fits every gender and looks classic and fun all in one!”
Techniques: Judy’s Magic Cast On, Magic Loop Method, kfb, pfb, twisted stitches, knitting in the round, reading from a chart (there ARE written directions, as well)
