The toque was tried on H and he loves it and it fits him perfectly. I wove in the ends and added the tassle. I think it turned out cute.

I used a Voyager hat pattern that I purchased a LONG time ago. I knit it out of this luscious hand spun wool that I purchased up in Minot. Lovely!

The pattern is by Smoke and Fire and can be purchased through them. The pattern originally had you knitting the hat flat and then sewing it into a tube. I thought that was dumb so I knit it in the round (as you do with hats) and elongated the top until I thought it was long enough and then tapered the end and added a tassle.

I added my instructions for making this hat in my Ravelry page, please access them using the following link.

I'm from Minot originally, (where your yarn came from?) now living in Wisconsin for the last 20 years. I have been looking for a Voyager Toque pattern, to make for my sons. Would you consider posting the pattern, or e-mailing it to me...or even faxing it?

Could you please post your variation of the pattern? I need to make one of these, and can't find a good pattern anywhere! Thank you:)
