This beret has been in my queue for what feels like forever! I don't know what took me so long to make it, because it's lovely. Here's a link to the pattern on Ravelry.
I swatched it, and found it was going to turn out a bit too big for me. So after some calculations, I cast on 110sts instead of 128, and increased to 168sts instead of 192, so I could do 7 pattern repeats instead of 8.
The white yarn is Debbie Bliss Rialto 4ply, and I had planned to use some Sublime Yarns Baby Cashmere Merino Silk 4ply for the contrasting colour. The colour I had was pale green, but it was too pale against the white, and I'd learnt my lesson on my Karin Kurbits Hat. So I used the Woolcraft Superwash 4 ply I had left over.
I'm very pleased with it. The pattern really is lovely, and I love how the decreases look at the crown. They are all done within the flower pattern.
And because I always think it is interesting to see, here is a photo of the inside with all the stranding.
Have a good week,
