Cavalleri Hat in Everlea Alpaca Plus


Last week I completed my Cavalleri Hat, a pattern by Shannon Cook, with our Naturally Dyed Canadian Alpaca Plus in the Medium Indigo colourway. It is beyond cozy. Our Canadian Alpaca Plus is the perfect yarn for it - the 25% merino gives it that squish that I love in a hat.

When I was first knitting it I thought that the pattern wouldn't be memorable enough for me to knit it without having to check the pattern once and a while, but I was totally wrong. After the first 9 row repeat I knit all the way to the decreases on the crown without issue. Patterns like this make me SO happy.

It took one whole skein of our Canadian Alpaca Plus (including the pom pom) and I knit it with 3.5mm needles for the brim and 4mm for the body of the hat.

Here’s my Ravelry project page for it:
