Alpaca Love and Tully Chullos

This week I’ve been working on my HPKCHC projects and have chosen some fun and fuzzy chullos.  I started off with the Alpaca Love Chullo and finished it in less than 24 hours and because I was having so much fun, started a second featuring a dog.  Colorwork critters are a blast to knit!

As for specific details about these hats, they are knit from DK weight yarn on 3.5mm needles.  The earflaps feature an intarsia star and the remainder of the hat is done in stranded colorwork.   I added an i-cord trim along the edges because I love how it gives the hat a nice finished look and I couldn’t resist some braided ties in a mix of both main and contrast colors.

I also need to thank my wonderful son and husband for modeling the hats for me.  Jude loves pretty well any opportunity to get his picture taken and has already decided that he wants an Alpaca Love Chullo for his winter hat.  🙂

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
