Now that gifts are received, I can go ahead and show you my finished holiday projects. I’ll be doing one a day so you don’t get overloaded.
My brother has quite a sense of humour so I wanted to give him something a bit whimsical. The bearded toque was my obvious choice.
This one was a pretty fun knit, and the very first knit I’ve done with any type of colour work. If I were to knit it again, I would have knit the join around instead of maintaining the ribbing pattern.
The best part of this piece is the mustaches. There are a few to choose from, and I made them all. Unfortunately I neglected to take photos of them before the hat was sent off. If you decide to make it, I highly recommend making all the mustaches.
I realize my brother would not be able to wear this toque all the time – some occasions just will not be appropriate. So I made a scarf as well so he can have something for other occasions.
Enter the Oreo Scarf – so named because it looks to me like a stack of oreos.
I had wanted to make something with large cables and wasn’t having any luck finding something I liked on Ravelry. So I made up the pattern myself.
I’ve included the link to the pdf on the side bar, if you wish to make it yourself.
