One hat. Two heads
(Excuse the wet-haired self-portrait!)
Yep. Mum has a different style to me. But her birthday beret seems just as lovely on her 🙂
I was thankful that it arrived in the mail on time and she seems to like it. The pattern is a new one, Crooked Paths by Melissa LaBarre. I wished that I could have knit it in a super delicious yarn but had to settle for something in stock at my LYS. It is a DK weight Crucci yarn. But I knew Mum wanted something versatile colour-wise, so I had to steer away from the few interesting things that were in stock. I am redressing this stash issue with a nice parcel from WEBS (yes, sis, I did press the Checkout button).
I loved this pattern- it is knit from the band up, three 12 row repeats and then onto the decreases. This was a very fast knit but enjoyable at the same time. I think the result is cute, and I am now looking forward to knitting one for myself at some stage. The weather is starting to cool down already, and we had a slight dusting of snow on the mountain overnight – so it will be beret weather before you know it!!
