New (Free) Pattern: Slush

pinterest

The Slush toque is the perfect quick knit. It uses less than one skein of super bulky weight yarn, requires only a couple of hours of knitting time, and results in a finished item that’s both warm and stylish. A faux fur pom pom adds a modern touch to this classic toque, making it great to give as a gift (or keep for yourself).
