Linda D 503 asked:
Where can I find a pattern for the hat? How many skeins of the Cloudborn Bulky Baby Alpaca yarn are needed to make both the hat and the scarf?
The hat pattern was found here on Craftsy, by an independent designer. I used 3 skeins of Cloudborn yarn for both hat & scarf, plus a small amount of multi-hued bulky alpaca left in my stash from a previous project (the hat band). The scarf started with left-over from the hat, then added 2 skeins. There is no pattern for the scarf. I used the stitch pattern from the hat, determined how many repeats I wanted to make the width, then just kept knitting for length until I had just enough yarn to weave in ends. I did at least an inch of rib stitch at both ends to prevent curling. May have also done a couple of stiches garter on each side. But don't really remember now on that. The hat/scarf was a gift for a friend who lives in another state, so I can't go back and look at it. Please note the Cloudborn Alpaca was a solid color - magenta. I wrapped the strands of hand-dyed Angora fiber around the yarn while knitting, to make it a better match for the stash scrap alpaca. The Angora fiber came from my EA doe, Lola Rapunzel. At this time, my Angora fiber isn't for sale, but I do have 2 full 35 qt. containers, and another harvest coming up soon, from both Lola and my old bunny, Angus. I may have to re-evaluate at that point if I want to start new containers, or start selling.
