This design is available at Canadian Living Online as “Create a simple ribbed toque

Watch cap
This simple toque is about as basic as it gets, and a quick knitter can finish this toque in a day. Made in standard worsted-weight wool using a pattern stitch that’s 1/1 rib stitch, it’s very elastic and one size really should fit all. If the recipient has a particularly large head, add four or eight stitches.

Finished Size
Approximately 17” (43 cm) around, unstretched, and 10.5” (26.5 cm) deep before folding up cuff; will stretch to up to 24” (61 cm) around.

Needles
Set of five US 7 (4.5 mm) double-pointed needles or size you need to obtain correct gauge. Note: You may also use a 16” (40 cm) US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needle until you get to the decrease rounds.

Notions
Tapestry needle
