Free pattern--baby's toque with ear lugs

oilpainterSeptember 22, 2009

I have a pattern for a baby's toque with earlugs for anyone who wants it. It is one I have made countless times since I created it for my son 40 years ago. Over the years I have refined it so that I can use many different yarns.

It looks like a regular toque with a brim and has ear lugs at the bottom of the brim. I have had rave reviews from lots of moms because it fits snug to the head no matter how the baby moves and often fits for 2 years. I make thumbless mitts to match.

It is knit in knit 1, purl 1 ribbing on 4 needles with almost any midweight yarn. All you have to do is make a 1 inch swatch and pick the size that most matches. It comes in 3 different sizes, with instructions on how to adjust it to your wool and also a size chart for knitting baby's hats.

If you want it let me know.

I'm sorry I don't have a photo. I've done so many and never thought to take a photo, because I never thought of posting it anywhere.

I'm giving it away free of any charge. I taught a knitting class and I gave it to them free too. I would post it here if there was a way.

As I said it is like a regular toque with a brim and it has ear lugs at the bottom of the brim. I do have a drawing of it on the pattern. The pattern is very clearly written and if you have problems you could ask me here.

I'm sorry. I totally blocked out that you said it was for free. I'm very much interested in the pattern. My grandson loves that type of hat.

Hello oilpainter. If this offer is still available, I would love to have a copy of your pattern. I have 12 grandchildren, and I am always on the lookout for new patterns.
Thank you so much, and may you all have a wonderful day!

I didn't know how to post a picture so consider this a trial run. These are the teddies and blankets I knit for my twin grandsons

Good morning oilpainter.
Thank you so much for sharing this pattern with me. I can't wait to make these for some of my grandchildren. With the autumn chill in the air this morning, I would say that they might be well appreciated very soon.
Also, I wanted to let you know that I think your teddies and blankets are adorable. Your grandsons are very lucky to have you as a grandma!
Thanks again, and have a blessed day!
