Project – More Tiny Toques

I mentioned last week that I might be addicted to making tiny toque ornaments (here’s the patterns for the first two I made). It’s so much fun knitting up these quick, little hats, instant crafting satisfaction.
Tiny Toques
This week I made one with little red hearts, inspired by Scandinavian Christmas decorations and another with earflaps, inspired by Minnesota hunters.

These little hats are about 2″ tall and fit around the top of most wine, beer or liquor bottles.

Supplies:

  • Scrap sock yarn in red, white and green (or really any colors you want)
  • Four size 2 double pointed needles
  • Tapestry needle
  • .25 inch white pom pom

Gauge:

8 stitches per inch (though gauge isn’t super important here unless you are making these to fit someone with a 4″ head)

Abbreviations:

  • k = knit
  • p = purl
  • k2tog = knit two stitches together
  • ssk = slip 2 stitches as if to purl, return to left needle and knit together

Heart Toque
Heart Toque
With white cast on 36 stitches. Divide between 3 needles. Join in the round being careful not to twist. Place a marker to mark the end of the row.

Row 1 – 3: work in k1, p1 ribbing
Row 4 – 7: k
Row 8 – 11: all in knit follow chart below

X = Red
O = White
repeat chart 6 times for each row.

Row 12 -13: k
Row 14: (k4, k2tog) 6 times
Row 15 – 16: k
Row 17: (k3, k2tog) 6 times
Row 18: k
Row 19: (k2, k2tog) 6 times
Row 20: k
Row 21: (k, k2tog) 6 times
Row 22: k
Row 23: k2tog 6 times

Cut the yarn leaving a 6 inch tail. Weave through remaining six stitched on the needle. Pull tight. Pull inside the hat and knot to hold the last stitches tight. Then pull the tail back out the top of the hat. Put just the end of the tail back inside the top of the hat creating a loop on the outside (this is the hanger). Knot to hold the end inside. Weave in all ends.

Earflap Toque

Row 1 – 4: k

Row 6: k
Row 7: ssk, k1, k2tog
Bind off

Make a second earflap across from the first.

Cut the yarn leaving a 6 inch tail. Weave through remaining six stitched on the needle. Pull tight. Pull inside the hat and knot to hold the last stitches tight. Then pull the tail back out the top of the hat. Put just the end of the tail back inside the top of the hat creating a loop on the outside (this is the hanger). Knot to hold the end inside. Weave in all ends.

Fold up ribbing in the front. Tack in place if you wish.

If you make any tiny toques we’d love to see them in our Flickr group!

    • Love these little hats, they’re precious!

      One tiny problem, on row 5 of the earflaps (for the second hat) it says “ssk k5 k2tog”, I’m thinking that should be a k3.

      I made that hat with worsted yarn and sz 5 needles, it’s just the right size for my little cousin’s American Girl doll :)
