Camilla Textured Hat
The Camilla hat has lots of texture and pattern making it a fun project to work on and a truly standout piece to wear. There are cables, bobbles and lace knit as well as easier sections in between and a neat ribbing. The hat is knitted on circular needles using the magic loop technique but can easily be made using double pointed needles as well. The Camilla kit includes 2 balls of Purl Alpaca Medium yarn.
