Renfrew is part of the book ISLAND, a collection of handknits designed by Jane Richmond and inspired by Vancouver Island.


This modern toque features a simple asymmetrical mock cable panel on a reverse stockinette fabric. Knit from the bottom up and inside out to maximize the use of the knit stitch. Renfrew was designed to showcase the brilliance of hand dyed, multi-faceted yarns. Shown in a slouchy style, instructions are provided for both a shorter beanie as well as this longer version to accommodate different preferences.
