This is a fairly simple slouch hat with a few twists to keep things interesting. While the orignal was done with 2 skeins of Skacel Simply Cria by Hikoo (95 yds/25 grams; 100% super baby alpaca), testers used other yarns with great success. Note, I had only 8” of yarn left when I finished the original -- before weaving in the end. I do not recommend trying to sneak in under 190 yards.
