need toboggan pattern
I want to knit my husband a toboggan. I had found a beanie pattern, but he wants a toboggan. In the south we call them soogins. Anyway, I am a beginner and have been looking for free patterns online. Can anyone suggest one that uses circular needles or dpns. This is one of the reasons I am wanting to knit one --so that I can learn to use circulars or dpns. Also, if it fits him, I will have knitted something that can be worn. Thanks.

Do you mean a Toque? Knitting pattern central has lots of stocking cap patterns or look in Ravelry under hats, they have hundreds..

To me a tobaggan is the thing kids ride down a snowy hill. A hat is what you wear on your head. Someone else asked for a tobaggan once though and I found out what it was for Canadians. My other Canadian friend calls it a Toque though.

I'm not sure what kind of hat you're looking for..

Here's the definition.. it does have a hat reference at the very bottom.

Based on the dictionary definition of Toboggan is this what you're looking for?

I lived in canada for a little while and half my family is. As far as I figured it out sometime back a Touque is any winter hat. But you'd generally wear it to go tobogganing

Jan, were you thinking, "A Visit from St. Nicholas?"

I know this was "so five minutes ago" (i.e. four months) but...

Jan, I didn't expect a southern California girl to know about Toques, toboggans, and stocking caps, and you didn't disappoint me. Those hats you linked to remind me of the vintage winter night-caps I remember from drawings for the poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas" more commonly know as "The Night Before Christmas."

Types of winter hats:
Beanie or skull cap. (tight fitting and short).

Here is a picture of a toboggan hat (and another one with ear flaps):

Here is a pattern for a double layered knit hat, you could add a few inches on either side of the hat to make it the taller toboggan/toque style vs. the shorter beanie/skull cap style.

Here is a pattern but it is called a watchcap hat but it is the same thing, really.
(If you want more room in the top before the decreases you can just add two to four inches (5 to 10 cm) of rows to the pattern before you begin the decreases.)

Winters in northwestern Pa. and lake shore snows would make me a winter hat expert.
Pay no attention to that gal from southern Cal. LOL

Here I was hoping someone had a pattern for a toboggan. I was wondering if the pattern used steel wool to make steel yarn for the runners.
