Yay or Nay Beret?
I really want to write about our trip to Taiwan but I wanted to share a project that I just finished! I made a beret based on the Urban Jungle pattern I found on Ravelry. I didn’t go as deep as they recommended and it looks more like a beret than a slouchy hat. (Which I also love).
I made a similar hat for my friend S before I left for Shanghai. It’s a heavy beret, hopefully to keep a loved one’s head warm for the fall and winter. It isn’t too difficult of a pattern if you’re good at puff/shell stitches and since crochet is very forgiving, it should be a lot of fun to make!
Now my question to you is:
Yay or Nay?
I think it’s absolutely a YAY and I probably would wear it all the time if a friend made it for me. I actually made this one for my Chinese teacher and I’ll have to get a pic of her wearing it today.
I used yarn that my friend Serena bought me from Soho and it’s just gorgeous! The colors are incredible and makes for a cute hat, especially when you’re wearing something simple.
Thinking about making these for a few close girlfriends for Christmas but I’m not sure they’ll like it.
What do you think? Would you wear something like this? And if so… what color/colors?
