Ariella Alpaca Hat
Read about the memorable visit that inspired this one-of-a-kind winter hat made with Tunisian simple stitch and single crochet worked in the round. Step-by-step instructions with color photos show you how--even if you've never tried Tunisian before. It's as fun to make as it is to wear!
You'll need two kinds of hooks for this project:
Size K standard crochet hook
Size L double-ended Tunisian hook
You also need two kinds of yarn:
A smooth, worsted weight yarn for the crown
A textured novelty yarn for the sides
The alpaca yarns I used from Alpaca Meadows Farm create an exceptionally soft, warm, and wonderfully textured hat.
The Hand-spun Suri Art Yarn creates the color and texture for the sides, I used Lopi Light yarn for the crown.
36 yards Hand-Spun Suri Art Yarn from Alpaca Meadows Farm
1 skein (115 yards) Lopi Lite Yarn from Alpaca Meadows Farm
