Maple Leaf Touque
The Maple Leaf Touque is a hat that doubles as a scarf during the really cold winter days.
The rich fall colours certainly add a bright spot to those otherwise monochromatic winter days.
Touque (pronounced / ˈtuːk/) is Canadian for a knit hat. It’s knit using 2 colours of yarn at a time, and uses a total of 6 colours.
