FO: Beret



Pattern: Periwinkle Beret by Grumperina
Yarn: Australian Merino Sport Weight Wool from Cabin Cove Mercantile
Colorway:Sunshine Sherbet
Needles: US size 2/US size 3 dpns (pattern called for size 1 & 2)
Completed: October 27, 2007
Notes:I wanna say that first of all that this was a fun knit. Pattern was easy to follow. (and that’s saying a lot considering how pattern challenged I can be). This is the 2nd hat pattern by Grumperina that I’ve done and each one was a joy. She even made trying a new cast-on a non-scary experience. The tubular cast-on was cool to do and very stretchy.

The yarn is reused from another hat I did and I like this one so much better. This yarn was the first purchase I ever made from Cabin Cove Mercantile and that makes it extra special to me. I think it was among the first batch of yarns Dave ever sold online. I had never used wool and never bought yarn online. Classic Cabin Cove is how I like to think about this yarn. I think the coloring works well with the pattern… the spiraling is pretty.

I have no idea who this hat is for. This project was all about the experience of knitting. I have no doubt that I will probably make another.

Keep on knitting!

  1. How truly pretty. :-) The pattern and the color work great together. And you know, you could always wear this beauty yourself.

  2. My gosh, this must be one of the most beautiful berets that I’ve seen for long! Not exaggerating here – the fact that it’s in my fave color sure adds to that, but it’s just got the perfect shape too and I love the pattern! Fantastic work!

  3. Looks great! I love how the different shades of orange worked up. I wish I didn’t look so ridiculous in hats – otherwise I’d make one for myself! :)
