FREE CROCHET PATTERN: Crocheted Alpaca Cloche

PDF of this pattern, with technical photos.

It’s quick to crochet and economical, too—one 200 yd skein of Alpacas at Wildcat Hollow sportweight yarn will yield two caps, making excellent holiday gifts! This one shows Hannah’s dark brown yarn, accented with pink ribbon, but it’s just as pretty in any Alpacas in Wildcat Hollow yarn.

    I am so in love with this hat! Do you think it could be converted – if I could find someone to conver it – to a knit pattern?
