Mystery beret shenanigans

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:40 am by Pink

My biggest projects of late have been making Merets (Ravelry link).

The first one I made was dark green with a light pink trim, and I seriously, SERIOUSLY overestimated how large my head was, so it’s kind of saggy and droopy. 😦 I’m pretty disappointed. I cast on for the large, which was obviously the mistake.

I started a second one which is going much, much better–this one is made out of a deep purple Irish wool cake that a friend’s mother gave me, knowing that I’d be able to use it, and use it happily. This time I cast on for the small since it’s a bulky yarn, and it’s going splendidly–I’m really looking forward to when it’s done. I’ll be working a few extra repeats of the pattern as well for the sake of slouchiness.
