The Meduh Toque is inspired by rediscovering connections with the Ancestors. There is a feeling of completion and wholeness in reforging the ties that couldn’t be severed. Meduh is the Tahltan word for Thank You.
The Meduh Toque is a simple stranded colourwork fade hat worked in the round, bottom up. It is suitable for colorwork beginners.
