Snowy Cable Toque

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

One of my viewers asked me if i could make a toque. I was like, "a chef's hat?!" haha. She sent me a pic of the hat she wanted to make, and I found a free pattern on lionbrand that looks a lot like it. I would definitely wear this on a "butt chappin' chilly" day! Here's the video tutorial!
Keeps you very warm, and there's two different ways you can wear it:

Christmas Tree look ;)
