Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Beginner to intermediate skill

Pattern Description:

When I discovered a Texas company named Brooks Farm, I was fortunate to come across their Four-Play 50% wool and 50% silk yarn. Because of arthritis in my left hand, I decided to try this yarn at knitting a beret. As a result of knitting with this marvelous yarn, my left hand does not hurt as much as it used to. The yarn feels so good in my hands and I have knitted numerous hats for friends and several friends with cancer who needed them when their hair fell out. What a complete joy it is to give them hats that feel as good on their heads as the yarn does in my hands.
