Product Details

Skill Level - Beginner

This is a straight forward hat, suitable for beginners - no ribbing, and only a simple decrease at the top, by which time you will be ready to learn a new technique, having mastered the main two knitting stitches, Knit and Purl. We have full How To Video instructions for this one. This style uses our beautifully soft alpaca/merino mix of yarn. Everyone loves how it is so soft, squishy and beautiful to knit with. Despite it's simplicity, it's also a really versatile hat: you can roll it up for a tight fit to the crown beanie-style, or roll it out for a long 2020s look!If you want it even longer, there is plenty of yarn left to keep going. It's very lightweight and very flexible so perfect for travelling.

This comes in the natural alpaca off-white. However, should you want a bright non-alpaca shade, like orange, pink or purple, it's ideal yarn for dying with vegetable dyes.

Sizes: Small - Medium - Large

  • Cotton alpaca project bag

Great to knit

This was the first time I've knitted with alpaca yarn ,it was beautiful and very soft, a great pattern and very easy to follow, I am an experienced knitter. The only thing I did differently was, I put 6 buttons on which was my mistake, still looks good. The service was excellent fast delivery, I liked the kit so much I've got a another different design, highly recommend

Hi Liz,

Wow, we love the finished look, and your unique button-take. It is really great to personalise anything we make, don't you think? Thank you for a great review and a lovely photo.x

Fisherman's rib scarf

Excellent service fast delivery. Love the wool nice and soft didn't take long to knit it. Will be ordering more soon


Pleased with how quickly the item arrived. Wool looks and feels lovely but it has been put away for a Christmas present so not knitted up yet!

Hi Suzanne

Thank you for your lovely review. Was it a christmas present for yourself? Did you start knitting straight away on Xmas day if it was? I really hope you, or the person you gave it to, enjoys the knitting and the wearing. Do share a photo when completed.x
