Made from yarn I found it at the thrift store. It’s a very retro burnt orange shade with quite a bit of brown in the coloring. I worked one by one ribbing for about an inch and a half to make sure the hem nice and stretchy, despite alpacas usual best attempts to stretch out (the yarn is a blend which helps as well). The pattern on the body of the hat is formed by knit and purl stitches alternating with rounds of plain knitting. the top of the hat has decreases of eight stitches set in four sections to form a smooth line of decreases. the hat is saw and not overly fuzzy, like many alpaca yarns.
