I rarely knit for Christopher because just like me he is very picky and won't wear just anything so I am very selective about what I knit for him. This toque was inspired by his favorite hat which is oatmeal in colour and double layered for warmth and comfort. Because it's his absolute favorite I wanted to make a hat that was similar but different so I decided to make the lining in a striped pattern so that this hat could be reversible. Chris loves it and actually favours the stripes. A quick thank you to Shannon for inspiring me to design a decent hat for the fellas.
