Added to cart

Inspired by the mountainous shape of the Alps, this pattern was designed especially to go with the yarn dyed by my son Ashley. This yarn was dyed to raise money towards a once in a lifetime trip to the Scout Jamboree in St. Crepin, France in August 2022. He has been a keen member of the Scouts since joining Cubs at the age of 6 and has carried on through Scouts and is now 14 and an Explorer Scout. The pattern name comes from the name the troop chose for the group of them attending the Jamboree - Apparently the fact alpacas come from the Andes not the Alps didn't matter!
