I Haven't Had a Beret Since High School

Another test knit I'm working on for Tara-Lynn is this stockinette beret.  I was excited when she mentioned she'd be releasing it soon on instagram.  I used to love wearing a beret, but I haven't owned one since high school.  In fact, I didn't even own one then.                                                                                                                                                            


I think the one I had belonged to a boy I dated.  I stuck several pins in it (the flair kind, not the voodoo kind) and wore it awhile before giving it back or chunking it when we broke up.  Anyway, I loved the idea of making my own.  So, I was pretty happy to be asked to test knit this one.

I had this great skein of Dk from Junkyarn, in the Diana colorway, that I was actually saving for this design.  How unique will this be?  It totally beats the army surplus beret of my youth.

What you see here knit up pretty quickly, but I did have to rip back because I didn't make it long (or tall) enough.  No worries, I plan to sit down and finish it tonight.

My other post on this knit is here.
