In Canada, a toque (rhymes with duke) refers to a warm knitted cap, traditionally made of wool and worn in our long chilly winters. This coordinating pair of patterns are fun and easy slip stitch mosaic colourwork. No tricky yarn management as you only use one colour per round.
This design is for anyone that’s mad for plaid and loves a quick cozy toque and cowl to knit, wear, or gift.
Stay cozy, friends!

We all know how speedy a hat and cowl are to knit. This plaid mosaic design is completely addictive!

  • This is a unisex design. Add a dash of personality with your colour choices. Are you loud and bright? Or cool and neutral? Both are so lovely in the Tartan plaid.

  • Yarns used are DK weight. The CC is DK held with optional lace weight mohair throughout.

  • You can knit two hats or one hat and cowl with one skein of each MC and CC

  • To bobble or not to bobble? Knit the pattern adding optional bobbles or without.

  • Pattern includes both written and charted instructions

  • Professionally tech edited and test knit by an amazing group of generous and enthusiastic knitters. Thank you all!
