Holiday Knitspiration: Alpaca Slouch Hat

h970

Our slouchy alpaca hat is one of our most versatile designs; worn as shown as a slouchy beret or with the brim folded up for a standard beanie, this hat is one of those knit-it-first, decide-who-it’s-for later projects.  Using just one skein of Ultra Alpaca or comparable worsted weight yarn, this hat can be worked up in a flash.  Perfect for gifting!

For a limited time, the pattern for this hat is available for free with the purchase of the yarn to make it.  If you’re shopping with us online, please mention that you’d like pattern H971 in the “special instructions” section at checkout.
