Is it a toque or a beanie?

I had some fun 'unventing' this warm winter hat. The super-stretchy stitch means it fits a baby as a toque up to an adult as a beanie.

The stitch pattern is a combination of rib and moss stitch. The decreases for the top remain in pattern and utilize a centered 2 stitch decrease as well as k2 tog and ssk.

Have fun with this quick knit: download now
