This listing is for the downloadable knitting pattern to create the Kyra Hat. This design was worked with one skein of North Star Alpacas white dk weight yarn (80% Baby Alpaca / 20% Cormo) divided, and with two strands held together. Please visit Maple at http://www.etsy.com/shop/NorthStarAlpacas, if you would like a skein of this lovely wool. If you prefer, you can choose a chunky weight alpaca blend yarn and work with just one strand, so long as you're getting your gauge. The openwork cabled headband portion is worked in one piece from side to side, then stitches are picked up to shape the crown. This is a fast and fun project for advanced beginners on up, so you can create a gorgeous gift for yourself, (or anyone else on your list!) over the weekend. Classy enough for the trendiest moms, but if it goes missing check your daughter's closet. :) Pattern pdf is now available as an instant download, so no shipping charges apply.
