During May whilst trying to find a hat to wear, I tried on a few slouchy berets and quite liked the style but couldn’t find any in a colour that I liked, so I headed over to Ravelry to see what patterns were available.
This pattern is a free download and has been designed by Natalie Larson and it is called “Star Crossed Slouchy Beret”.
This was a pretty quick knit as I cast on last Thursday night and finished it at lunchtime on Sunday.
I used Morris Empire Superwash Merino 8ply wool, Clove and it took just over 1 skein.
I’m very happy with this beret and can see it getting quite a bit of wear now the days are getting quite cool.
Don’t you just love being able to see something in the shops or on the internet and be able to go home and make it yourself, in the colour you like and even the fit – it really does make me smile!
