Unisex hat made from our scrumptious soft, worsted spun, ivory yarn and the kit includes pattern, yarn, biography of Alfie the alpaca and care instructions.
Knitting is the most popular craft hobby in the UK. This wonderful pastime is being taken up by celebrities, youngsters, people from both sexes and all ethnicities.
The Purl Alpaca Designs knitting kits are exclusive, design-led and upmarket. Our fleece is sourced from local breeders (and our own herd); it is hand sorted and graded before being made into yarn by a specialist spinning mill. Only the best quality is used and we blend the natural fibres to create our wonderful colour range. We don’t dye the yarn. Environmentally aware; even our packaging is made from recycled materials.
A quick and fun project to make, Alfie is a great way to practice using bigger needles and a scrumptious, chunky yarn. Suitable for men or women, Alfie is knitted in the round and designed to be slouchy rather than beanie.
The hat is knitted on circular needles using the magic loop technique but can easily be made using double pointed needles as well. The Alfie kit includes 1 balls of Purl Alpaca 100g Chunky yarn.
