Materials
  • 1 (1, 2) skeins of Blue Sky Alpacas' Royal Alpaca, 100% royal alpaca. We used the colors Alabaster, Cafe Au Lait, and Spanish Leather.
  • We no longer carry the yarns we used to work the yoke, but an excellent substitute is Koigu's KPM Needlepoint Yarn in 4 colors (1 or 2 skeins each), 100% merino wool. 
  • US 3, 20- or 24-inch circular needles (or size needed to get the correct gauge)
  • A set of US 3 double pointed needles (or same size as gauge needle)
  • US 2, 20- or 24-inch circular needles (or one size smaller than gauge needle)
  • A set of US 2 double pointed needles (or one size smaller than gauge needle)
  • 4 small stitch holders
  • A size B (2.5mm) crochet hook
  • Two 3/8-inch buttons in a coordinating color. We used Purl Soho's Small Round Buttons.
