pattern: Meret (Mystery Beret) by Wooly Wormhead (Raveled)
yarn: Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted (100% Merino Wool) in 501 (Cabernet) - less than 1 skein
made for: Margaux
As much as we both love cables, I wanted to knit her something that was a little different from other berets she already has, so I chose this pattern. We've often discussed a shared love of Malabrigo...and wine...so this yarn choice was a no-brainer. I knit the medium size, with one inch of ribbing, and one extra repeat for extra slouch, figuring that would look good with her gorgeous curls, and look- I was right!
Neither of us know why it's taken us so long to do a swap, but we both now know this won't be our last - and that's fine with me. I have mad love for this girl and I had an absolute blast knitting for her! Look at how freaking cute she is! (Hey, M- can you model all of my finished knits?) :)
Now I know you want to see the one she knit for me. Here it is:
Am I lucky or what? It's seriously gorgeous! And it's Koigu! 'Nuff said. :)
Oh no wait, I have something else to say: I LOVE IT!
