alpaca's go!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015

Friends!  I can't even tell you how much I love this hat.  The pattern.  The yarn.  Seriously!
Remember when I mentioned the Yarn and Soul yarn?  It is amazing.  Super soft.  Super great to work with.  Since it is a superfine alpaca,  I made two balls and then held both together to make a stitch big enough to get the correct gauge.  It worked beautifully.  
And this yummy yarn?  I bought this at the fair over the summer.  This yarn was from Tiger.  (How great that they tell you that?)  Tiger wasn't at the fair but some of their Alpaca's were.  SO fun to see them.
This hat has the perfect shape to it.  A little slouchy, but not too much.  The pattern is written to have the "right side" as the purl side.  I just like knitting better than purling.  So, after the brim pattern, I started knitting instead of purling.  It's meant to be reversible AND is unisex.  Perfect.

Pattern: go!
Yarn:  Yarn and Soul (blue), Asgard Acres Alpaca (brown)
Needles: Size 7

This is absolutely, positively, without a doubt, my favorite new hat pattern.  And since these are already taken, it's time to make more.
