Alberto

$5.00 USD

My neighbor, Alberto, is just the cutest! I had a knock at the door, and there he was with a sad look on his face. His hat that he brought over with him when he moved to Canada from Columbia had gotten snagged and torn apart. Since he’s always chatting with Curt and noticing all his lovely hats, he thought I would be the best person for his quest for a new one.

With this request, I let him pick out the colorway he would like me to use. He chose this stunning Cursed colorway from Tiny Human Knits. I got cracking on a design right away, so he doesn’t have to go too long without a cozy warm handknit hat.
