Snow Day Toque Free Knit Pattern

Nothing says January like a warm cable knit hat!  I designed this toque to be extra toasty since we are heading into our coldest months of the year.  The yarn that I selected is my favourite bulky yarn: Knit Picks Biggo.  Its extra thick, and extra soft – the perfect combination!


I have written out and posted the free pattern for this cozy hat below on this page.
