About a year ago, when Norah was really wee, I was driving through a southern Vancouver neighbourhood called The River District and found myself dreaming about baby toques. Problem was, once I started dreaming about it, I couldn’t get it out of my head! I wiped up a couple and thought I was finished with the idea but then Chrissy offered to test knit one based on some notes I’d made (thank you for pushing me, Chrissy!). And I still couldn’t get it out of my head. In the end, I did formally write up the pattern for a baby, toddler/child and adult toque. I quite like the construction and while there is one seam, one can modify the pattern to utilize a provisional cast on if that is preferred (I will be including this option in the final pattern).
Pattern :: River District Toque (pending publication)
Yarn :: Dream in Colour Classy, Raspberry & China Apple, ~90 yards
Needles :: 5.00mm 16” circular & DPNs
I am looking for 2-3 testers who would be willing to have their finished toques by September 1, 2015. Feedback on readability, yardage and fit is required. Sizes available to knit include Baby, Toddler/child and Adult. This toque is quite stretchy and will fit a range of sizes in children up to teens for the middle size. If you are interested, please send me a message and I will whisk the pattern off to you ASAP!
Happy knitting :)
