Light Through the Leaves

Light Through the Leaves



Light Through the Leaves is a striking colourwork toque with a doubled ribbed brim and a crown that evokes stained glass. Work yours in a bold solid with a colour-shifting background yarn for a dramatic effect. Fold the brim up for an extra cozy toque or leave it long for a bit of slouch.
