Sleet is a cozy, slouchy toque that knits up quickly in super bulky weight yarn. Great for beginners to colourwork, this is a quick knit that can easily be finished in an evening. The two-colour pattern looks great in highly contrasting colours, or it can be worked in two similar shades for a more subtle look.
