Easy Chunky Toque

IMG_7662With the extreme cold weather upon us I decided to make some super warm toques and cowls.  This pattern works up really quick using super bulky wool yarn, and is extremely warm.

This patter is written in the following sizes: children 4-12 (19.5″-21″), teens 13-17 (21″-23″), and adult 18+ (23″-24.5″).  If you should come across any errors, please feel free to comment and let me know.

Optional Increase your hook size for a looser fit.
