Free Knitting Pattern: Candy Stripe Toboggan

February 7, 2014

Since winter has us clutched closely to its bosom with no end in sight- at least according to local groundhogs- I thought a pop of color and a quick, cozy knit was in store. A great striped hat is just what you need to liven up the monotony of your winter wardrobe and the oversized pom-pom makes a fun statement. Plus this hat is such a quick knit that you can make several in many different color combinations to coordinate any outfit. The Candy Stripe Toboggan makes a great gift. You can work it in tonal colors for your guy friends, florescent and neutral for your trendy girlfriend, Tiffany blue and white for your mom and just about any crazy color for the kids. The stripes pop out thanks to cleverly planned purl rows.

You will need 1 skein of worsted in color A for the main stripes (white in my pattern)

1 skein in color B for the purl stripes (red in my pattern)

1 skein in color C for the pom-pom (blue in my picture)

1 pom-pom maker (I used the large pom-pom maker by Clover)
