I have a friend who can wear any hat and look good in it. No joke. Her birthday is November 7th, so I knit her birthday present a little early because I want to knit myself my first sweater very soon. I had some Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton lying around, and conveniently found a nice slouchy beret pattern meant to be knit with cotton. Perfect.
It involves an 8-round lace repeat. Now, I’d never done lace before, but I knew I could do it. I may have messed up the first half or so of the hat by doing the yarnovers backwards (back to front), but we’ll just say that’s a design element. Pictures to come
The hat was done in about 5 days, after a lot of car knitting. I would like to do more lace in the future, because it involves concentrating hard on the knitting and taking your mind off anything else you could possibly be thinking about. Anyway, enough rambling!
Till next time,
