Whirlwind Toque Knitting Pattern
Whirlwind is a bottom-up, close-fitting unisex toque with a twisting cable pattern that winds its way around the hat. Its design was inspired by the way the wind sends autumn leaves spinning, and it’s the perfect sort of hat for a perfect sort of walk on a perfect autumn day.
The blue sample is size Adult L/XL and was knit with Small Bird Workshop’s Towhee DK in the Haze colourway.
