The Lansdowne Series of patterns have been some of the most viewed on the blog. The Lansdowne Toque, Cowl, and Basket all have the same beautiful stitch pattern that really produces a beautiful texture. However, I have been asked for more clarification on how to do the increases, so I decided to make a Newborn Size toque and make a step-by-step Lansdowne Toque Stitch Tutorial for anyone who would like to see the steps broken down further!
