My Petawawa Toque
What’s the deal with all of the hats? I have all of these winter sweater-y plans, with yarn ready in “yarn corner”, but I keep side-tracking into hats. Several were as gifts, and a few were to use up stash. But I think I must’ve needed a break from knits I have to stare down at and these hats were the perfect thing.
I knit my first Petawawa for a friend, then immediately cast on one for myself. It’s been finished for some time, but I just didn’t get around to photos until I’d finished a third one as a gift for my son’s band secret pal.
This is the Petawawa Toque from Good Night Day and, like the others, I used needles sized 4 and 6, working in magic loop. Magic Loop is definitely the easiest way to keep a project in your purse. I’d pull it out and work in quick snatches of time.
Obviously, I like the pattern. I especially like it in tonal yarn. This Gynx merino worsted in the Spanish Roof colorway is so lovely. I admired the color shifts all the way through the project. My other post on this hat is here.
oh so pretty!!!
Such a pretty pattern and color! It really suits you!
That is a wonderful color, and merino is so soft that it's perfect for hats.
Thank you so much! It's a very addictive knit.
It's true! This one, along with another I made in Gynx Yarns, is the softest hat I own. When I first put it on I felt like I'd bumped my knitted accessories up to the next level.
