With this free pattern, we aimed for jaunty, playful, and warm—we think we hit the bulls-eye! The Striped Tasselled Toque is perfectly easy—in-the-round knitting with a bit of striping and a bit of seaming. But it’s the two tassels that really make us smile.

We knit our Toque (rhymes with duke) in the tech-savvy Blue Sky Fibers Techno! It’s a clever, chunky-weight fiber with a core of silken mesh blown through with delicate, baby alpaca fibers. Weightless and lofty, its soft and airy fuzz promises to keep your noggin nice and warm.
