canadian slouchy {knit kit}

$58.00 CAD

This rustic Canadian Slouchy Toque is a great knitting project for any advanced beginner! With traditional Canadian colors featuring the iconic maple leaf, this hat is simply Canadian! Worked flat using the intarsia colorwork technique, this hat is knit bottom-up starting with a broken rib before the 40-row chart and followed by crown decreasing. The hat is then seamed up at the center back.

    MODIFICATIONS

    • In the samples, I added sequins to the maple leaves only but you could add the sequins to all the red parts.
    • Colorwork: I combined Intarsia & Stranded methods.  Carry the white throughout (Stranded through the red) but use Intarsia for the Maple Leaves (NOT carrying the red behind the white.
    • 150" - 200"/ 381 - 500 cm strands of RED can be cut mid-way while working the maple leaves when you need to separate your balls to start a new leaf.  You will need separate balls/strands for each Maple leaf.
