I’ve finally put my Ravelry account to good use and made this beret (or “meret,” short for “mystery beret,” as it’s called on the site) from a free pattern. All you knitters who do not have a Ravelry account, get one pronto! I used Berocco Ultra Alpaca yarn in Pea Soup, and I loved working with it. Overall, this beret was a fast and fun knit. I want to make a few more — perhaps with a little more slouch — so I’m crossing my fingers in the hope that we’ll get another month or so more of this invigoratingly cold weather! (I live in L.A., hence the need for crossed fingers.)
This looks really good, you picked the perfect color for this project.
hi there, just wondered if you have this pattern available online or if one can buy it? it looks really lovely 🙂
hi christina! thanks for the nice comment. sorry it took so long to respond. i’ve been incredibly busy and haven’t had time to create anything or update this blog…sadly. anyway, this pattern is available for free at ravelry.com. you’ve got to create an account first. once you’ve done that, log in and search for “meret.” i’m sure you’ll have lots of fun making it!
