Cozy Woven Winter Toque Pattern (Crochet)




It’s that time of year again! I’ve been gearing up for cold weather like a mad woman. This year is going to be extra special because my husband and I are about 2 weeks out from moving to a new town that has cooler winter weather than where we currently live. You know what that means?! I’m finally going to be able wear all my crochet and knitted goodies for longer than a month this year! Ya’ll have no idea how excited I am.

What I love about this particular toque is that it is so thick and cozy. It’s worked in mostly front post and back post double crochets, so it provides almost double the warmth of normal double crochet stitches.  The best part is that it looks intricately woven, but it’s as simple as working in the round! I’ve been so ecstatic to post this pattern that I worked all weekend to type it up and do a run through so it’s ready for ya’ll.

If you’ve been on this blog before, you know I like to keep these intros short because let’s be honest, getting your project started is the most exciting part! At least, I know that’s my mentality when I’m ready to get my craft on!

You can find me on Instagram @i_can_knot_even . I’d love to see your work and connect with you! You can also tag me in your work for a chance to be featured on my page! Feel free to sell any items you make using this pattern, but please do not sell this pattern. All I ask is that you credit me and link back to this post whenever possible! Thank you!

Happy hooking, Everyone!

XOXO,

To finish the hat:  Turn your work inside out and weave yarn through the tops of the stiches from your last round. Pull the opening closed like a drawstring. Secure your ends. The hat is now complete!!!

Add and optional pom  pom: Use a pom pom maker OR wrap the yarn around your hand several times until you’ve reached a thickness you like. Slide the yarn off your hand and tie a long piece of yarn in a knot around it. Next, cut all the loops that were created when you tied the knot. Give your pom pom a “hair cut” until all the pieces are the length you want and the pom pom looks fluffy! However, leave the two long pieces from the knotted yarn because the final step is to stick these two pieces through the top of the beanie and tie them together on the inside to attach the pom pom.
