Sylvia designed the Orca Toque in honour of the giant whales who make their home in the Salish Sea on the West Coast of British Columbia, Canada. This resident pod of beautiful orcas is dwindling. Sylvia is committed to protecting their habitat. This one-size-fits-most hat pays tribute to the great mammals.
Hat size: medium/large 20.5 ins (52 cm)
Needles; you can knit the whole toque with double pointed needles, but if you want to knit the main part of the toque with a circular needle and then change to the double pointed needles for the top of your toque…that works.
One set of 6mm (US 10) double pointed needles
One 6mm (US 10) 16 in (40 cm) or 24 in (60 cm) circular needle (measured from tip to tip)
