Luscious alpaca yarn in a no-fuss pattern! The double-sided rib at the cuff can be worn down (which creates a slouchier look) or folded up (for extra warmth around the ears). Spaced Moss stitch bands provide a touch of interest; the top is worked as a flat square.

Skills Used
Knit, k2tog (knit 2 together), knit in the round, make 1, purl, ssk (slip, slip, knit 2 together through back of loop).

Gauge Note
This hat is knit at a tighter gauge both for warmth and to somewhat mitigate the natural relaxation properties of alpaca yarn.

Notions
3 + 1 stitch markers; yarn needle for weaving in ends
