Petite Tuques

Did you know Canada.. Petite Tuques is a Canadian small business that creates beautiful hats, mitts and scarves and creates her own patterns.  Owner of Petite Tuques, Lisa, lives in Quebec Canada where it gets cold A LOT and she started making hats for her children. Soon after she opened an online shop at iCraft and Etsy. Lisa specialises in cold weather garments, but is now branching out into warm weather garments like this fringe scarf. She has also started to write her own patterns, and has two published on Knit Picks!

Lisa made me the most beautiful fringe scarf - it's a nylon/cotton mix and is made in a ribbon. it's just so funky, and so light and airy. Fun for spring and summer, I've been having lots of fun trying it with different outfits. Makes me feel more put together standing for the school pick ups too. :-)  The quality is fantastic, and I know it's very sturdy because I fiddle with it all day long..haha..

Lisa also creates her own patterns, like this Bella Striped Hat - inspired by the Twlight movie (how cool!). She also offers free patterns, like a really cool “Bufanda” Neck Muff - perfect for our Canadian winters and freezing cold wind. I'm always yanking my scarf up to get it to cover my mouth and nose, this would be PERFECT!  Knitters, get over there right now and check out Lisa's patterns, you won't be disappointed.  Check out this great video showing off some of her work..

I looooove the fingerless mittens featured in Petite Tuques Etsy store as well, perfect for tweeting, texting and more while outside in the winter. With beautiful colours and unique patterns, Petite Tuques offers stylish, fashionable and much needed accessories for our Canadian weather!  Keep up to date with Petite Tuques on Facebook and Twitter.
