Off My Needles: Begbie Toque

I'm finally getting around to finishing up designs that have been in the works for ages... it's so embarrasing but I have all of these project bags full of unfinished work, some of which are bound off and just need finishing touches or photographs, or simple editing... So much for monogamous knitting.

One of these loose ends that I've just now wrapped up is my Begbie Toque. I knit this back when I was knitting everything out of Patons Classic Wool Roving. I had so much fun knitting the Begbie Cowl and I thought the stitch pattern would make an awesome toque.

 I've included two finishing options depending on how you wear your toque...


...and I was just dying to have a toque with a pom pom, which enabled me to use up every last inch of yarn. I literally had enough left to tie the pom pom onto the hat. 


• 100g/3.5oz ball of Patons Classic Wool Roving (shown in New Denim) 109m/120yds
• 6.5 mm/10.5 US dpns, set of 5
• 6.5 mm/10.5 US circular needle, 24 in
• Tapestry Needle

14 sts and 18.5 rows = 4 in over st st

To fit: 20(22) inch circumference


  1. I am finishing your "Jane" design and I love it, I look forward to adding this one to my queue!

  2. I like the slouchy version !
    I could be nice to have coordinate mitts or gloves or scarf.... This winter, i realized I was wearing,red mitts with a black shawl, and the only hat I have is... brown ! What a chameleon...

  3. So cute! And I love the slouchy pompom.

    How do you like working with the Roving? I bought a ball last summer, but I still haven't knit anything with it. Hmm...

  4. awesome hat!! I love the options, too- something for everyone.

  5. I LOVE this!!! I am gonna have to do this one. Is it difficult? You are so flippin' talented, Girl!
