A delicate combination of cables and eyelets wend their way gently across the surface of this softly unstructured set. Stockinette panels are punctuated with simple rhythmic double cables and pierced with rick rack openwork columns. Whisper soft with a delicate halo, pure alpaca brings these pretty details to light while its two-ply character adds a certain rustic quality. The hat is slouchy in shape and is topped with a fluffy fur pompom (yarn requirements allow for a matching yarn pompom if you prefer) and the cowl is a generously sized double loop. Both pieces are worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom up.
