Inis Mór Toque

Named after the largest of the Aran Islands, this toque features a big bold cable, flanked with braids and texture.

The toque is knit seamlessly – first you work the main body in the round from the bottom up. Then using a join technique you knit the brim onto the main body, creating a continuous cable that’s perpendicular to the main body of the toque.

This pattern is available as a single pattern download, or as part of the CableStar Vol. 1: Galway Bay.
