Knitting! Cowichan Toque






I have been busy knitting up a toque (yes, that's right, a toque! Not a hat.) My sister sent me the link for a free Briggs and Little Country Roving Toque pattern (click here for their other free patterns). It knits up quick, in just a couple of hours and it is knit flat.
*Update 02/12/12: Unfortunately, it looks as the though the pattern is no longer free.*
I added a little pattern to it, just after the ribbing. You have 6 rows to work with, before the decreasing starts, to add in whatever pattern you want. My pattern only needs 5 rows. I will share the one I used.



It matches the Cowichan sweater I made this Fall. I don't know who is going to get to wear this one, me or my husband. Maybe we'll share it!




Hahaha, it is too much with the sweater though!

  1. So cute!!! I never heard the word Cowichan before. I guess I should google it.

    1. It's a place on Vancouver Island in Canada. The First Nations People there first made the style of sweater in the picture and they are now know as Cowichan sweaters.

  2. I like this pattern and would like to make this toque but don't understand your picture/diagram. Is there any way you would be so kind as to type out a pattern. I am loving all of the other knitting projects that you have posted on your blog (you seem so crafty and are very inspirational). I can't wait to get started on all of them, as they will be great Christmas gifts!

    Thanks for sharing all you do!

    1. Sorry for taking so long to get back to you, Mischa. I was on holidays with limited internet access. I'm not sure how to type out a pattern like that. I would have to look into it. If you are on ravelry, you might want to consider asking for help on a forum. I will see what I can do, too.

  3. I'm pretty new to knitting so some of the lingo doesn't make sense to me and I have to youtube a lot of things :) But I will look into ravelry.
    Thanks so much, hope you enjoyed your holiday!
