The Twinkle Toque is an easy hat to knit, suitable for beginner knitters. It is knit entirely in garter stitch from side to side using straight needles, no circular or double pointed needles needed! The crown shaping is created with a technique called "short row shaping". This technique is described in the pattern with a picture tutorial and is very simple to do. We used two strands of Berroco Flicker yarn held together to create a bulky weight yarn. Flicker is a very soft alpaca with wonderful stretch and excellent drape appropriate for a nice slouchy shaped hat. Flicker is a bit of a glamor yarn! Hidden in the alpaca is a tiny bit of silver or gold, that gives the yarn a subtle shimmer. Top your hat with a fun pompom!
Your Knit Kit comes with: The Twinkle Toque pattern and two skeins of Berroco Flicker yarn. Choose between two stylish colours for you Twinkle Toque.
Level: Knitters must know how to cast on and knit. The pattern includes picture tutorials on how to shape the hat with the “short row” technique, and how to seam up the hat too.
