I don't know why this fairly simple knitting pattern tripped me up at first. A couple of times, I got to the end of a row and had an extra stitch. Of course I could not be bothered expend the brain function to figure out why and put it aside. But eventually I came back to it, frogged some rows, and got on the right track.
When I first tried it upon casting off, disaster. It was like a beanie--very fitted on my head. Not really the look I was hoping for. But after washing it and drying it over a plate, it gained a more beret-esque attitude. While it still is not a full-on beret, it is cute and wearable.
|Like my scissors necklace? I got it here.|
