Toque, Yo!

Many of you have asked about the hat I am wearing in my Knitty profile picture. Well, I've finally taken the plunge into self-publishing and released the pattern! There is the version you have all seen, which used the left-overs from Hanne Falkenberg's Tokyo (the sweater in the picture):

and the short version,

shown here using two skeins of Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift.

It uses a simple slip stitch pattern to achieve the color-work pattern,

and only one color is worked at a time.

It can be finished in one day!

The tall version uses boning at the top, but the short version uses no boning.

I named the hat Toque, Yo! in homage to the sweater that inspired it.
Yes, I am a terrible punster, but hopefully you will forgive me! I have the pattern listed for $5 through Ravelry, but if you are not a member, you can also purchase it without logging onto Ravelry.

Ravelry members click here and non Ravelry members click here. I hope the second link works! Let me know if not? Thank you! :)

Great pattern! I am not a color knitter, but if I was I'd be putting this in the queue!
