Alpaca toque

Remember that handspun alpaca yarn I made? Well, I went ahead a knit a toque with it. I knit it on size 8 (US) needles and used a mock cable pattern in place of ribbing. The decreasing at the top was done using a somewhat unorthodox P4tog method, but I like the look it gives with the mock cables being suddenly ended rather than narrowed into single knit stitches. This toque is incredibly soft and warm!
