Last night I finished a cute little beret for Elliot's best buddy, Cameron's, Mom Kirsten. Wow, that was a long sentence. I hope she likes it. This little beret pattern was written by Ysolda and can be found here.
Pattern: Ishbel by Ysolda
Yarn: Fleece Artist Sea Wool in Ebony
Needles: Size 2 for Brim and Size 6 for Beret Body
The pattern gave me a few problems and I ripped back, knit up, ripped back, knit up but I would not let it defeat me! In the end Jeanie won! If I do this beret again, I would put stitch markers between the lace repeats, which may end up being a pain since your round beginning changes twice. I would also make it just a bit more slouchy or just do the next size up! This one is size small.
I think it will fit Kirsten well, she is a little tiny thing. It is not a very warm hat but I hope she enjoys it!
