Everyone loves a beret! Don't they? Well, I certainly do. I've always been a hat girl. Love hats. Even though I live in Southern California, I find excuses to break out the hats whenever our weather permits. I haven't had a beret in a while, but once I saw this one, I knew it was time to knit one for myself. And so, here it is! Plum.
As soon as I saw Julia's berets in person, I was further convinced. And then, I was allowed to try one on, and I fell completely in love. Thankfully, Julia didn't seem to mind me hijacking it, professing my love for it, and petting it throughout the day.
Lucky for us all, I decided to knit my own. I used the fabulous Kat Coyle's fabulous beret pattern from Greetings From Knit Cafe and one skein of Blue Sky Alpacas Sport Weight in #512 (Eggplant). So soft! I can't gush over this pattern enough. It's perfect.
Beautifully constructed, easy to follow, and shockingly (only for me) quick to knit up. I highly recommend this pattern if you sense a beret in your future. Love, love, love!
