Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Circular Knitting
  • Cables

Pattern Description:

This beret came into existence the week of the Halloween snow storm. My sister asked me to make her a hat, and I decided to make a design project of it. I wanted whatever I made to look good with her curly brown hair. She's the kind of person who has three young kids and magically white sofas, and a really nicely decorated house. She likes details, and is always understated but never dull.

I know that she doesn't like over designed things, so I left most of the hat plain, with a cabled crown that also functions as the decrease section of the pattern.

October Snow is best for a knitter who has made a cable project before.

The beautiful model is my grandmother, I think she looks stunning at 90 BTW.
