The tundra toque is a matching project for the tundra jumper. They are visual translations of our arctic experience in Iqaluit. The colours and motives are derived from our walks on the frozen beach, snow flakes we catch on our sleeves and the northern lights we see from our bedroom window.

The pattern is available in two sizes: small and medium.

Head circumference:
small: 53-58 cm / 21-23”
medium: 58-61 cm / 23-25”

The tundra toque is knitted bottom up and in the round. It features a 1x1 ribbed brim and stranded colourwork throughout the body. It is a fitted hat with no slouch, the pattern includes instructions on how to make it slouchy, if that’s your preferred fit.

It is knitted in istex lettlopi. The colour combinations used for the women’s and men’s hat in the photos are as follows:
