More quick knits for the Alpaca Farm.
Pattern: Chu'llu (rav link)--Knitting with Balls
Yarn: 100% Alpaca (locally spun)
Needles: 4.5mm
Not a pattern I would pick, but a very enjoyable knit and fast too. I added extra increases to 104 sts, just to make it a little bigger. 20" for a man seemed small to me.

Now this one, was fun. I doubled the yarn for gauge, and knit Thorpe. I'll definitely be making more of these. This is the large size and I did a shrimp stitch (single crochet in the opposite direction) for the edging instead of half-doubles.
