Voyageur Cap

Pointer: "Double thick and exceptionally warm, these hats have many names depending on what century you are in and which part of the world. Whether you know them as a Voyageur cap, a tuque, a double cap, a Machault cap or a sailor’s cap, this pattern is based on surviving caps from the seventeeth and eighteenth centuries and is accompanied by historical notes and references.

"Note: Final sizing is achieved by fulling, and some people are finding their hats are running a little big. This is fine if you are going to be fulling down a lot for a weatherproof hat, but if your plan is to full only lightly then I suggest knitting a slightly smaller size."

Our Canadian hearts are swelling with pride at the creation and inclusion on Patternfish of this hat, lovingly researched by a Welsh woman! Gauge is very approximate.
