Free Pattern Friday: A Special Hat
I don't get to make many things for my son Alex. He's a minimalist, doesn't like a lot of clutter, and frou-frou. But I know he likes alpaca, which is warm and lightweight, and our weather has gotten colder lately. I scanned Ravelry, looking for the most simple beanie pattern to go with some Mirasol Tuhu yarn I have in stash. It's a cloud-like blend of baby llama, merino wool, and angora--as light and warm as alpaca and softer. I used the Benefaction Knit Hat pattern by Stacey Winklepleck for Knit Picks. It was a pleasure to knit this simple hat with such luxurious yarn.
