Baby hat with misti alpaca?

I have now seen about 2 zillion baby hat patterns, but I need one for alpaca and I just can’t find one anywhere!

Anyone have any ideas?


Is it Misti Alpaca Chunky? If so…

Here’s one but it is not the traditional style hat. The gauge for Misti Alpaca Chunky is Size 10 needles - 3.5 stitches to the inch (108 yds, 100 grams, 2 ply) so it seems that any chunky yarn pattern that has that gauge would work.

Another pointy hat.

This Knitted Basic Hat Formula pdf file might help you out for figuring out your own pattern.

Head size chart for different size babies is useful information as well.

Holy crap that’s a lot of info!

Thanks SOOOOOO much!!!


You are very welcome. Hope it helps. I know there was another site I was looking for and will post that if I can find it. I swear I bookmark stuff or save it as I see it, but it always seems to disappear from my computer when I need it. With the chunky yarn, it should be a real quick knit so maybe if you try one just experimenting, it will turn out the way you want it the first time. :cheering:
