I am a beginner and would like to knit a toboggan for my 18 month old daughter. I need a pattern that's pretty simple...can anyone help? TIA!
You want to knit your daughter a toboggan? A sled? :?? Are you sure you don't mean something else? A hat for the toboggan maybe?
If it's a hat you are wanting I can help you there. Do you want to knit in the round or flat on two needles and seam?

Yep, a toboggan is a type of sled. I just came across for a pattern called Knit Toboggan Hat - http://www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Knitting/Projects/Accessories/WR1735+Knit+Toboggan+Hat.htm and it does refer to it as a toboggan...
Sorry for the confusion...growing up we used "toboggan" for both the sled and the hat you would wear while on the sled. I think most people might call it a beanie? Not sure...
People do use the term beanie sometimes, but to me a beanie is one that just sits on top of the head and barely covers the ears. And I also picture a propeller on top. :teehee:
I gave you some links so see of those work for you.
Here you go and it's easy
