Sí, Capitán!

Inspired by many similar caps floating around, I decided to create one of my own. It’s easy to memorize and fits from a child to an adult with a big head or lots of hair! Knit this up in a couple of hours for a quick gift.

Best of all, it takes only ONE skein of a yarn that’s like drugs for your fingers! If you haven’t knit with Catalina Alpaca yet, you’re missing out. Hurry up and go get some before it finishes!

Pattern: Capitán by Rosi G.
Yarn: Catalina Chunky Alpaca, 1 skein (109 yds)
Gauge: 3.5 sts and 6 Rnds per inch in Stockinette
Needle Size: US 10 (I used a 16” Addi Turbo and dpns for the top)
Notions: 2 really cute buttons (the ones shown were purchased at M&J Trimmings)

  1. Wow, GREAT hat!!! It’d be so fantastic in handspun (I like the one-skein stuff for handspun – I’m not doin’ more than a skein or two!)

  2. Totally rad. I agree it’s hot, and like Alyson said, perfect for handspun. However I want one now, so I went and bought yarn for it. Get ready to start that galery girl.

  3. Aha! I have a skein of chunky alpaca and now I know what to knit with it! I only wished it was red like yours! Thanks for that great pattern!

  4. Awesome hat! I added it to the que as I have to finish the projects I have started before I start another…I am trying to be good! Ravelry makes it very hard-too many enablers! Thanks for the pattern

    I have yet to try Catalina Chunky Alpaca…mmh

  7. I LOVE THIS HAT!! I knit it in one day, and haven’t taken it off of my head since! (Well, I supposed I took it off to sleep…) What a wonderful, quick, cute little pattern. You are very talented.

  8. Hi,
    I’m currently making this hat. Almost done! But I need clarification on the last step in making the brim. I’m totally new to this. First time making something other than a scarf.

    The last step after BO is “stitch open edge closed on bottom of brim.” Do you mean the PU edge between the hat and brim?

  9. This pattern is great! I tried to download it though and it came out without text. Is it possible for me to get a copy from you?

    Thanks, Kim
    (I’m not on Ravelry.)

  10. I like it a lot but I don’t have a good level in English and then I can’t understand the pattern. Maybe can we translate in frech I Hope so because we don’t find so beautiful model in France
    Thanks a lot
