DIY: Crochet Pineapple Toque and Free Pattern

I started this crochet pineapple toque several times over the last few months, and I finally got around to finishing it! The lattice-like effect is easily done with double crochet stitches in two colours of yarn, and topping the hat with a pom pom made us think of pineapples. The crochet stitches are rather dense, so the toque is quite firm and not as squishy as some other hats, but I think that just adds to the warmth factor.

This hat is nicely done up in two contrasting colours of yarn from Ewe Knit here in Toronto. I chose light beige and a rusty orange Drops Nepal yarns that are 65% wool and 35% alpaca.Crochet Pineapple Toque with Free Pattern
