Irish Moss Toque



This toque features an intricate main cable framed by a seed stitch border and a smaller, twisting diamond cable. The seed stitch is repeated inside the diamonds, creating a pleasing balance between the cables.
Since the toque is knit in the round, no seaming is required. Instructions for two different sizes, women’s and men’s, are provided, although the elastic quality of the cables make the toque fit a variety of sizes.
Knit in Patons Classic Wool yarn, this toque has the warmth and durability of wool, and yet is still soft and comfortable against the skin. The folded ear band creates an extra layer to keep ears warm.
