PATTERN DETAILS

It is a known fact that a person never knows when he or she might be in need of a shrubbery. There are, it is rumoured, a long lost order of knights who, when encountered, demand such a thing, and will not take Ni for an answer. This hat is the solution to such an encounter. Now, when you go walking through the woods, you, or whomever is wearing this toque, will always have a shrubbery on hand. Arthur, King of the Britons, should have been so lucky! Shrubbery is a close-fitting, unisex toque featuring a twisted stitch pattern. The sample is shown in size medium, and was knit with Madelinetosh's merino DK (colour: Thyme). The pattern contains both written and charted instructions. Instructions are also provided for working the twists with and without a cable needle.
