We all know things are better in threes, so that is why we have added another toasty warm accessory to our popular On The Rocks series which celebrates the great outdoors in true Canadian fashion. To top off the trio in cosy style, this tweedy toque is knit in Sirdar’s all-new Harrap Tweed Chunky, a peppery yarn spun in a wool/nylon blend, washer friendly and available in a spectrum of eight rustic shades.
Stay posted for one more surprise pattern next week……
