Crocheted in 100% baby alpaca, it is lightweight while still keeping you toasty, and the combination of stitches, in their perfect placement, creates a stunning texture that you will love to touch over and over again. Enjoy!

This pattern is very easy to modify for larger or smaller heads. Simply add or subtract fsc in multiples of 6.
You want this to be a snug fit due to the fact that alpaca doesn’t hold its shape as well as wool. If it’s a little loose when you first put it on, it’ll be around your neck in no time.
