Peregrina Tuque

I designed this tuque on a breezy beach in Mexico

The journey is the destination. And this simple cabled tuque is ready to travel whenever – and wherever – you are. Knit from the brim up in squishy worsted SW Merino, the “Peregrina Tuque” features a trio of repeating cables that hug your head and are sure to keep you toasty. Compact enough to sneak into your pack and head out with you into the wilds of the West Coast rainforest, to the urban jungle, or to Everest basecamp.

I was inspired to create this pattern by a true perigrina soul, Eva, who is always heading out on her next great adventure, and is never not wearing a tuque ;).

Climb one more peak, knit just one more row. And have a lovely knit.
