Devin's Toque Revisions

Pattern Revision: Devin's Toque
Handmaiden Fine Yarns

i'm making a pile of these toques for hanukah this year. i love them, they are fast, i can do them in my sleep, they feel great, they look great and are well received. but i don't like the crown decreases in the pattern, so here are my revisions.

based on my brother's request i suggest that if the recipient's head is not water melon sized reduce the overall pattern by 4 to 8 sts. the hat is VERY stretchy!

devin's toque decreases

- work in pattern until 12m of yarn are left.
R1 *k2tog, p2, k2, p2; rep to end.
R2 & all even rows: k the k sts & purl the purl sts.
R3 *k1, p2, k2tog, p2; rep from * to end.
R4 *k1, p2tog, k1, p2; rep from * to end.
R5 *k1, p1, k1, p2tog; rep from * to end.
R7 *k2tog, k1, p1; rep from * to end.
R9 *k1, k2tog; rep from * to end.
R11 *k2tog; rep from * to end.
R13 *k2tog; rep from * to end.
- break yarn, pull through remaining sts with darning needle. weave in ends.

How many stitches do you use for a 22 inch Devin's Toque? I can't find that little white card with the pattern anywhere in the stash room. I have been nuts trying to find it and I just don't remember what I did the last time.

[would you email me privately at]
