Stacey from Charlotte Purls gave me some Baby Alpaca Grande for Valentine’s Day and this hat (the pattern for which I found here, through Ravelry). This is my new favorite hat!

I’d like to make a few more, in different colors, and using different yarns. The alpaca is awesome — I love alpaca — but it’s definitely a very warm hat ( alpaca is 3x as warm as wool). Also, I’ve made a whole bunch of things in green lately, and while I love green, I’d like to branch out a bit!

For summer, silk or bulky cotton would be great…well, we’ll see. This hat is really very quick to make, so I can see dashing off quite a few of them!
