Born and raised in Northern California, Julie learned to knit in over her New Years 2010 Lake Tahoe vacation, from her sister, Lauri. She has been knitting almost non-stop since then, publishing her first pattern less than a year after initially partying with tangly yarn, and earning the knitting nick-name, The Machine, for her even tension, and perpetual knitting. Julie started her first blog, a sewing & knitting blog, called Project-Hallway, in August of 2010.
Now a proud, new mother she spends most of her free time, what little there is with knitting needles in hand, finding that baby-hats are a quick fix for calming a creative need. In her other spare time, she loves to cook.
Her favorite fruit is the yellow nectarine.
During a Christmas time family visit, my eldest sister gushed about her love for Taylor Swift. While watching an E! True Hollywood Story about Taylor Swift I felt a connection with both her music, as well as herselfone of the reasons why she is so popular. I also noticed a red beret that she was wearing, during a visit to London. I loved the hat, and I now love her music, it is my guilty pleasure. So, to honor the inspiration she has provided me with, I created a knitting pattern for the hat.
Her Beret looks very slouchy, almost over-sized, so that is how I created this pattern. I have included two sizes, and the pattern now also includes a Baby & Toddler version, made with the left-over yarn from the Adult version. If using Cascade 128, which I have specified in the instructions, there is just enough for both hats.
