I have now seen about 2 zillion baby hat patterns, but I need one for alpaca and I just can't find one anywhere!
Anyone have any ideas?

Is it Misti Alpaca Chunky? If so......
Here's (http://www.fabulousyarn.com/hat_patterns.htm) one but it is not the traditional style hat. The gauge for Misti Alpaca Chunky is Size 10 needles - 3.5 stitches to the inch (108 yds, 100 grams, 2 ply) so it seems that any chunky yarn pattern that has that gauge would work.

Head size chart (http://www.bevscountrycottage.com/size-chart.html) for different size babies is useful information as well.

You are very welcome. Hope it helps. I know there was another site I was looking for and will post that if I can find it. I swear I bookmark stuff or save it as I see it, but it always seems to disappear from my computer when I need it. With the chunky yarn, it should be a real quick knit so maybe if you try one just experimenting, it will turn out the way you want it the first time. :cheering:
