Free Blue Sky Alpacas one-cable handwarmers pattern

Blue Sky Alpacas are famed for their beautiful patterns, which are creative and fashion led. We are offering you a gorgeous handwarmers pattern as just a little taste of the range of patterns from Blue Sky Alpacas. Click here to see more Blue Sky Alpacas patterns. 

Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes

Blue Alpacas Worsted Hand Dyes is a luxurious blend of 50% royal alpaca and 50% merino, which gives a wonderful softness and warmth. It knits up as a heavy worsted, and its round construction makes it perfect for cables and other patterns with desired stitch definition. There are 17 rich colours available, all hand-dyed using low impact dyes.

The handwarmers below are knitted in Petunia (2026), but we also love the silver hues of Charcoal (2025) and the deep Midnight Blue (2013).

  24. Diane Ashton says:

    Download working now – thank you!

  25. Diane Ashton says:

    Hello lovely LoveKnitting people: Delighted the pattern download is working now!

    I posted a comment earlier referring to a Ravelry download for the pattern that WAS working. That post appears to have vanished, unless I’ve been looking in the wrong place.
    I do appreciate that you would prefer to promote the download from this page, although I’m sure customers would also have appreciated a ‘quick fix’ in the meantime.
    If my earlier comment is still on this page, thank you. If not, please be aware of the impact of ‘comment removal’ on otherwise happy and loyal customers who love what you do. 🙂

  26. Nancy Muir says:

    thank you the pattern is on now

  27. Jan says:

    Thank you for such a lovely pattern. I very much appreciate when designers/websites are willing to share their hard work with us for free. A few snags should not get peoples panties in a knot! LOL

  28. Linda says:

    THANK YOU FOR THE FREE PATTERNS! The whinging, entitled complainers are appalling. Wow.

  29. Kate says:

    Thank you for such a lovely pattern, download works fine. Will be making several pairs for Xmas presents.

  30. B from Canada says:

    Just downloaded the pattern and opened it. Works great.

    Thanks for another wonderful pattern.

  31. Reinhilde says:

    Just what I needed . Downloaded the pattern and can’t wait to start this new project .
    Thank you so much !!

  32. Annette Douglass says:

    Thank you for the prompt reply.
    Where do I put in my password? I guess it won’t download without it.
