Vestiges of Winter was designed while watching the snow fall, hoping winter was finally on its way out and spring is just around the corner.

Designed to be a quick and easy knit, this toque was made with handspun in mind, but works equally well with commercial yarns. It can be knit in a few hours, and is perfect for gift and charity work, or to use up partial balls of colour you have left over from other projects.

Using Fair Isle knitting, this hat is an easy introduction to this technique for knitters looking to branch out and experiment.

There are sizes included for Teen/Small Adult (S/M) and Medium/Large Adult (M/L).

Techniques used:

  • Knitting in the round (using circular and double pointed needles)
  • Fair Isle (stranded) colourwork
  • Reading colourwork charts
