knit alpaca hat pattern, colorwork alpaca beanie knit pattern, DIY winter sports hat, pom pom hat pattern
This alpaca beanie hat is knit in the round. It features a parade of 6 alpacas circling the body of the hat with garter stitch stripes above and below. It can be topped with a pompom or an Icord knot or left plain.
I designed the hat to work with a neighbor’s all natural alpaca yarn (Borgstein Alpaca Farm). Alpaca fits the theme of the hat, but it is not necessary to use it - my test knitter used washable merino wool.
Best to use 2 contrasting colors of yarn: 90 yards of main color and 20 yards of a contrast color. A 3 inch pompom will need about 15-20 yards more of yarn.
This hat is knit in the round using size 7 (US) and size 9 (US) double pointed or circular needles.
Gauge is 5 stitches/inch.
