Although I’ve been working on my Double X cardie, I’ve been itching to start a more portable project. I decided to knit a black beret and nipped out and bought two skeins of yummy Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk DK.
I really love Beret Gaufre from Veronik Avery. It’s a super cute textured beret, but my yarn won’t work with the gauge of this pattern. Trust me, I tried.
I then perused the hat patterns on Ravelry and found Marabou Beret from Ingrid Nielsen. Also very cute. I’ll be trying this pattern out next and hopefully my gauge will work here. I’d better hop to it, since it’s going to be cold, blustery and rainy here in California. No snow though, so it’s bearable.
After this hat, I fear my fascination will turn to mittens (sibling rivalry?)…
