My friend Patricia made this hat out of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Tweed in the colorway 100 which goes with every jacket I own. It is my favorite hat, in part because, it is 100% baby alpaca which I love!

The Wurm hat in the above picture is available on Ravelry by Katharina Knopp. This is a free pattern with over 13,500 projects being knit by fellow knitters. I have knit this hat with Misti Chunky, Plymouth Grande, and Cascade Chunky and all work well and are lovely to wear.  If you knit this hat, you or a lucky loved one are going to enjoy it for years to come!
