The Dead of Winter Toque

Often, when I’m designing a set of patterns, I come up with the largest piece first and model the other patterns after it. The opposite is actually true in this case. About a year ago, I had spun some beautiful merino into a super chunky yarn and I needed to make it into something. After a lot (like, a whole lot) of trial and error, I made it into a toque. It turned out to be the warmest toque ever! I actually wear it every day, even in -40. So, If you have a nice wool based yarn, I’d definitely recommend using it for this pattern.

I used Loops and Threads Charisma, which is 100% Acrylic, #5 Bulky weight yarn. Though it is listed as a #5, it is more like a #6.
Any yarn of similar weight would work.
