This cute alpaca themed hat has a ribbed welt and a stocking stitch body with a stranded colour-work alpaca repeat pattern encircling the lower section of the hat body. Beads are used for the alpacas’ eyes, although these are optional. The hat pictured is worked using a lovely soft wool silk mix yarn in DK/light worsted weight and is topped with a pompom.

The pattern instructions are written for both knitting in the round using a circular needle with no seaming necessary or knitting flat on two needles with a seam at the back. (You may, therefore, only wish to print the appropriate pages for your project.)

Sizes to suit: Child/Young Teen, Adult/Women, Large Adult/Men.
The pictured hat is adult size.
