Interesting Patterns for you to knit or crochet


Herringbone Toque Pattern $5.00

The Herringbone Toque is knit sideways on the bias from crown to brim. The brim has increases, the crown has both decreases and short rows, all at an inconsistent rate to compensate for the natural biasing of the fabric. Every 12 rows, the strip returns to the very top of the crown, concealing the wrapped stitches of the short rows. In the end, it is either grafted or 3 needle bound off to the provisionally cast on beginning stitches, then the hole at the crown is gathered with a running stitch.

I have a backlog of people who have seen the sample and want a version for themselves, how nice that it's an intriguing pattern and I don't mind making repeats.
