you may have noticed the girl was wearing a new hat in yesterday's post.
the wife declared the girl needed a beret.
and a beret was knit.
i loved the pattern: day beret by hannah fettig. it was fast and very easy to knit and the design is clean classic. the pattern only provided child and adult sizes. the girl is still a toddler so the hat fits a bit big but it'll do. which means unless something happens to the hat, she should be able to use it years.
the yarn is good, too: rowan felted tweed - full of texture, with a slight halo, plus it's machine washable. and i couldn't help but pick a purple-y tweed. the girl looks great in purple.
now the wife wants one, too.
