I just noticed I haven't blogged about two hats I finished months ago! Time to correct that mistake.
First I have a beret - the pattern I used is Beret Easy and the yarn is an old merino / modal blend called Marika Moon. I was going to give this hat to my mother in law, but I still have it... let's see what I do with it!
The second hat is made with a vintage Irish wool which I dyed myself. I think I used a 5 mm needle for the hat.
The pattern is self thought up too. I tried to make a nice cable, but it ended up pretty wonky. Back to the drawing board with that pattern!
On a side note, I'm healthy again! I think I must have had a slight food poisoning - I was soooo sick, but it passed quickly.
Love the beret! Great colour, and it sits really well on you. I can see why you haven't gifted it yet!
Glad you're feeling better.
