Twiss & Weberâs collaboration began when they met at Wabi Sabi, an Ottawa knit shop, in 2009 and discovered not only did they share a common background in fashion but they shared a goal, a desire to make stylish, well-crafted patterns that are straightforward to understand and easy to knit.
New knitters will adore the fashionable projects and will be encouraged to learn more about their craft. While seasoned knitters will love the original attitude, the time-saving methods and concise language. Twiss & Weber think knitters shouldnât need to understand complicated jargon in order to create gorgeous things, this has been their goal all-along.

The combination of shape and fabric elements creates an elegant and warm hat for our Canadian winters. The hat is knit flat in garter stitch and then a slanted rib lace is created for the toque. A short amount of basting is required for the gathering, but it is worth the effort! This style is rated Easy skill level.
