I am so excited to share my new Magnolia Toque Crochet Pattern with you all. Ever since I made Ashley of A Crafty Concept’s Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy Headband pattern for my last market, I have been obsessed with the lemon peel stitch. This is such a simple stitch repeat that gives gorgeous results.
I have been pondering some good patterns for markets since releasing my blog post/video on how to build stock for markets. The Magnolia Toque can be made in less than 2 hours by most crocheters and material costs are only a few dollars per hat. This makes it a great option for one of your pattern selections for your next market season.
Not only did Ashley get me hooked on the lemon peel stitch, but the brim of this beanie was inspired by Ashleys double brimmed Claire Bun Beanie. Her brim is made with a different stitch than mine so it makes for a denser brim. If you want an even warmer brim option, check out her amazing pattern.

Row 1: HDC in 3rd CH from hook. HDC in each CH across. CH 2 and turn (19sts).
Row 2 – 42: HDC across. CH 2 and turn.
Fold in half (hamburger style) and seam the ends together using SS’s in each stitch. Refer to photos below for video for clarification.
Now we will fold the brim to shape. You will fold it in half so that the seam you just made is on the inside. See photos below.
Magnolia Toque Body
We will now seam the brim of the hat closed and begin making the body of the hat. We will need to CH 1 and make 60 SC evenly around the top of the brim through both layers of fabric seaming the brim closed in the process. (60sts)
CH 1 and turn your work.
Round 2: In the first stitch make a DC. SC in the next. *DC, SC* around the entire hat ending with a SC in the last stitch. Join with a SS to the first DC of the round. CH 1 and turn. (60sts)
Repeat round 2 until your hat measures 6.5″ high from the bottom of the brim to the top. Mine was approximately 9 to 10 rows.
Next Round: You will now decrease every stitch around. SS to first decrease a the end of the round. CH 1 and turn. (30sts)
Next Round: Repeat round 2. (30sts)
Next Round: DEC in each stitch around. SS to the first decrease at the end of the round. CH 1 and turn. (15sts)
Next Round: *DC, SC* around. Ending with a DC, SS to the first DC. CH 1 and turn. (15sts)
Next Round: DEC in each stitch around skipping the very last stitch of the round. SS to the first decrease at the end of the round. CH 1 and turn. (7sts)
Pinch the top hole closed and seam closed with 2 to 3 SCs.
Tie off and weave in ends.
Flip inside right and add a pom if desired and your hat is complete!
Magnolia Toque complete!
Now onto the real debate… how to pronounce “toque”. If you missed it, this was a question posted on my Instagram stories and sounds like Canadians pronounce it like “tuke” (rhymes with nuke) and UK and a lot of US people pronounce it “toke” (rhymes with joke). I will let you decide which one you prefer but I cannot wait to see all the gorgeous Magnolia Toques you make!
Let me know in the comments below which yarns/colors you used and if you decided to add a pom or not! Until next time, XOXO Tay
