Alpaca Drift Hat Kit
Soft and airy baby alpaca knits up quickly in this satisfying cable hat kit. Alpaca Drift is a baby alpaca/merino/nylon chunky weight blow-yarn that is lightweight and fuzzy. The Alpaca Drift hat kit, with accompanying Drifting Cables hat pattern, is equally satisfying as a first-time cable project or for experienced cable knitters. A simple 2x2 brim flows into a cable motif through to the crown. Can be worn as a folded brim for a close fit, or as a slouchy toque. The kit comes with a snap-on pompom for easy removal for washing or for switching between accessories.
