Alpaca Your Wrap

Last fall I designed the Fallen Leaves Slouchy Hat – in gorgeous Baby Alpaca from the LB Collection! It was just one skein, and it was so fun to make. Well, I finally got my hands on some more of this lovely yarn, and have designed a luxurious wrap to match! However, “Fall Leaves Wrap” is the name of another gorgeous pattern by my friend Jessie At Home – which you should totally check out HERE, it’s amazing! So to avoid confusion, the companion piece to the Fallen Leaves Slouchy Hat has a name all it’s own – the Alpaca Your Wrap!
