The Braided Fishtail Toque is nice and stretchy with a bit of slouch. Despite being worked in DK weight the post stitches create a thick cozy hat. Made in baby alpaca the hat is extremely soft and luxurious.

Cables can be difficult to learn and follow in written format. The YouTube video works through the pattern step by step making the pattern not so scary to attempt.

Child hat fits a 20-21″ head size. Hat is modelled on a 21.5″ head, giving a more fitted look. It’s always a good idea to measure first before picking the size to make. Some children have adult size heads and some adults have child size heads!
