This was my first project in knitting a hat in a square shape, leveraging four US 11 clover needles. It's built on 72 stitches and can be completed in a couple of hours for advanced knitters. It stands out more in red, burgundy, and bright colors. Pattern will be posted soon...stay tuned.

Hi. I got the yarn from Portland, OR several years ago as I was visiting a dear friend in downtown. We passed by an amazing yarn store that was small but as we walked in, it had hats hanging all over in the middle of the store. I saw a red hat and immediately asked for the pattern and the yarn. Thank God, I found both. From there, I started my journey of knitting a hat on 4 needles. You may look up this type of Alpaca on the West Coast. I haven't seen it in the Northeast, US. Good luck.

In addition, Colorful Stitches in Lenox, MA also carries very pretty collection.
