I got the September/October issue of Crochet Today yesterday and I have been eager to try the Beginner’s Beret pattern. I love all of the great hat patterns that are available but I am so timid to try them. I have only done one other hat pattern that I have ever been truly happy with and that was the Swirl Cloche hat that I made last year. With the encouragement of the designer, Linda Permann, I gave this hat a shot today.
It was very easy and it looks quite stylish. Unfortunately, it was just a bit too small as I have a larger than average head, so I will give this to my son’s girlfriend. I will try increasing the size to make one for me. 🙂
