Roscoe's Toque knitting hat pattern by Holli Yeoh

Roscoe’s Toque

This cozy, textured hat has super insulating powers and will keep you toasty warm. A simple combination of knits, purls, and slipped stitches, the Waffle Rib stitch creates delicious texture and thickness for a comfortable and sophisticated look that any knitter can achieve.

Roscoe’s Toque is knit in the round from the brim, with optional pompom.
