The Siena Hat is a stylish and cozy accessory perfect for winter. It’s named after the fleece harvested from alpacas named Siena and Michelangelo at the Island Alpaca Farm in Martha’s Vineyard, MA. This hat showcases the incredibly cozy yarn by combining it with a textured stitch pattern that creates a fancy, twisted design. The Siena Hat starts with a 3x2 Rib and continues with a slipped stitch pattern until reaching the crown decreases, which are worked in stockinette stitch. If you can knit in the round, slip stitches purlwise, and decrease stitches using K2tog, SSK, and P2tog, you will have no trouble knitting this hat.


The hat comes in 3 sizes but can easily be adjusted by adding or subtracting a multiple of 5 stitches from the given number in the pattern instructions.


Gauge is measured by knitting the Right Slipped Cross stitch pattern in the round using appropriate size needles to obtain gauge.
