North Wind Toque(to͞ok) a close-fitting knitted hat, often with a tassel or pom-pom on the crown. Whether you call it a toque (like we do in Canada) or a beanie, this hat will help you fight the wrath of winter, and look fabulous at the same time! North Wind Toque is a fun, fast project knit seamlessly in-the-round with superbulky yarn. Be warned: the colourwork pattern makes this hat “just one-more-round” addictive.
