I have a new toque! Living in Canada you’d think I have plenty of them, but while I have tons of scarves I actually only have one toque and that one is pretty worn out and definitely ready for retirement.
Initially I wanted it to match these mittens and was already half way done, but for some reason the broken seed stitch turned out really wide, making the toque way too big for my head. So, change of plans, some unravelling and a few squirrels – and here it is! I was also considering a pompom like Paul’s, but then decided against it because I wanted the little white diamonds at the top to stay visible.
Good thing there’s enough winter left with plenty of opportunities to wear it! 😛
