Slouchy beret

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!

Snap - I am halfway through a slouchy beret! I thought it was the same pattern at first - not the same but similar! Gorgeous hat - you will get a lot of use out of it through this current cold weather!

Sharon, I like that color on you. The pictures make me want to touch it. It looks so soft and warm. It really is a nice satisfying feeling to know you can make something just the way you like it. Nice job!

You're a woman of many talents Sharon! Knitting and I are not the best of friends so unfortunately it's shop bought accessories for me

Oh, I do so love a beret and you are so lucky to be able to wear them. They look so pathetic on me that I gave up long ago! Lol.
Sharon, can I ask a favour. Could you visit my blog and follow me on Bloglovin? Anyone who carried the blogs they were following from Google Reager to Bloglovin are not getting my feeds because of a problem way back with my blog url. I miss hearing from you and others who use to comment on my posts. I hope I'm not being too presumptuous. Thank you .

Oh wow, this looks great on you and what a super quick knitter you are too! Great job and you will be toasty warm for winter.

Nice work, and now no complaints about it being cold at 6am when out with dog. Isn't it nice to get something you want in the colour you want. I'm still looking for a dark brown jumper, don't want to knit it.

Very nice! Although Slouchy's don't suit me, I might just give this one a try.
