You want to knit your daughter a toboggan (http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/toboggan?r=75)? A sled? :?? Are you sure you don't mean something else? A hat for the toboggan maybe?

If it's a hat you are wanting I can help you there. ;) Do you want to knit in the round or flat on two needles and seam?

Yep, a toboggan is a type of sled. I just came across for a pattern called Knit Toboggan Hat - http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Knitting/Projects/Accessories/WR1735+Knit+Toboggan+Hat.htm and it does refer to it as a toboggan...

Sorry for the confusion...growing up we used "toboggan" for both the sled and the hat you would wear while on the sled. I think most people might call it a beanie? Not sure...

People do use the term beanie sometimes, but to me a beanie is one that just sits on top of the head and barely covers the ears. And I also picture a propeller on top. :teehee:

I gave you some links so see of those work for you.
