A quick knit for using up leftover yarn from other projects, the Amethyst Wish Toque uses broken seed stitch to create a dynamic overall colourwork texture while only using one colour per round, making it perfect for beginners.

This pattern is for you if… You’re new to knitting with more than one colour, you want to knit with only one colour at a time, or you want an easy to remember stitch pattern that looks more complex than it is.

Move along if… You prefer something with a more challenging construction.
