Charity Toque

For non-Canadians, a toque is "a close-fitting knitted hat, often with a tassel or pompom on the crown." At Rabbitch's request this one is destined for Vancouver.

The hat is not as big as it at first might appear. The model is a bit of a pin-head.

It's lovely, thank you! And no matter the size, it will find a good home.

What a great hat! I'm sure it will be most welcome!

Thanks Leanne, I was able to make it using leftover yarn from my stash.

Rabbitch, it's a pretty standard "adult" size. It fit all the adults I tried it on around here. It looks big because the styrofoam head would be more like a large child's.

Ah, sorry, thought you were saying it was a child's size. It's great, thanks!

The "adult" hat I made last night will fit a 10-year-old or so. Or a very small-headed adult.

I'm gonna try again tonight!
