When I finished my Hetty cardigan I had a skein of Malabrigo Worsted left over. 3 skeins would have given me just enough yarn according to the patterns and as I was planning to lengthen I bought 4 just in case.
I found this cute beret pattern by Andi Satterlund. It's a free pattern so I'm calling this a totally free project!
|Love those decreases in the star shape!|
The beret knits up quickly and easily in the round- I think it only took me a couple of days. It's got a simple cable pattern around the band - this would be a great introduction to cables if you want to learn them.
I blocked it round a dinner plate which was the perfect size.
|What is the weird stripe in my hair? I swear that's not normally there!|
A nice quick wearable project and toasty warm as it's getting colder here.
