I was able to make a bigger size of the beret in the post below in a honey color for myself. I did give the original one to my son’s girlfriend and she loved it!
I just finished another beret which is the Raspberry Beret pattern from the Sept/Oct 2009 issue of Crochet Today. This is also a Linda Permann pattern and I got the confidence to try it after having success with the first beret. After some frustrations (my own doing….hello….read the pattern carefully!! LOL), and having to start over, I just finished it!
This one is more slouchy than the other one and also is a more open weave. I love the design that the pattern created.
I am thrilled to have to now have two berets that I can wear which is amazing for someone who never wears hats. These actually look pretty good on me. 🙂
