Happy Hat & Cuffs
The Happy Knitting Pattern gives you the pattern to make both the beanie style hat and the cute cuffs, then it is up to you if you buy the yarn for both or for one or the other. The clever shaping is hidden in the cables and makes the hat an interesting project to make, whilst the cuffs are an easy introduction to cabling. The hat takes 2 balls of Purl Alpaca Medium and the cuffs take 1 ball only. When making both, 3 balls might stretch to a second pair of cuffs – the ideal gift! Happy makes a great cable statement when combined with Havana Cape. Needles: Hat - 4 and 5 mm circular (using magic loop); Cuffs - 4 and 5 mm straight needles. Tension: 22 sts and 24 rows to 10 cm square over Cable Rib using 5 mm needles. Photographed in the colour Alpaca Dawn (fawn). Knitted in Purl Alpaca Designs 100% pure alpaca Medium yarn. A substitute yarn is shown below. Named after Happy the alpaca.
