It’s about that time to be caroling again! For those who want to liven up the holidays with some fun, albeit occasionally inappropriate, Christmas carols, I have six I wrote from back in 2009.
This was the third tuque I made from my recently designed and fitted one piece double layered tuque pattern shown below. The ability to put something larger than a panel on the tuque is why you’d want to really use this pattern, as well as better durability, compared to the multiple panel patterns you usually find out there. Here, I grabbed some portraits of The Original Series Star Trek Enterprise crew from a cotton print, and appliquéd them onto the flat fleece before sewing together to form a shaped tuque.
This tuque has 4 panels, unlike the CANADIANA tuque blogged about yesterday that had 5 panels. Due to the panel print of this fleece of the Denver Broncos, though, I had to make it in 12 pieces to get a design I liked, not 3 pieces like yesterday’s tuque, even though it could have been done with 1 piece as shown below. It doesn’t quite match the BRONCOS fleece jacket I made a few years back, due to me not having any of that fleece left, but it’ll still look cool together.
I needed some properly fitting tuques with winter coming so I took it upon myself to create a design that was extremely warm, durable and had some flexibility for design. This was the first of three very different looking design tuques that I made, but which was essentially all from a one piece pattern to yield a double layered fleece tuque.
