Meret - Mystery Beret by Woolly Wormhead (free Ravelry download)
Size L with slouch (one extra pattern repeat)
4.5mm handmade DPNs and 60cm Knitpicks interchangeables
Naturally Merino Fine 10ply - 75g
Cast on Mar 5. Cast off Mar 7.
I've not knit or worn a beret before but this is the project which has changed all that. I absolutely love how this turned out!! Love love love.
How did I never wear a hat like this before? I need more!! (Candidates for next up include this and this and this - all Rav links)
The pattern was very well written and was an easy construction but with just enough going on to make it a really interesting knit as well. Very quick with 1 1/2 skeins of worsted weight knitting up in just over 2 days. The yarn was reclaimed from a WiP I'd forgotten about and frogged awhile back. Its from Naturally Handknits but one they are no longer making (such a shame as it was lovely to work with and there is a really shortage here of good 10ply). I have another 75g leftover and am pondering making matching handwarmers. (Matchy matchy..there's a fine line isn't there? Hmmmm.... will ponder that one some more)
More pics etc on my Ravelry page.
