I was inspired to create this design when I received my shipment of Sari Silk yarns from India. The colors were all of jewel tones, and my first thought was how the jewel tone colors would be great with a chestnut colored Churro fleece I had dyed not long before receiving my order of Sari Silk yarns. The beret is very versatile as it can be adjusted from a size 22 to 24 inch circumference around the head. The draw string is accented with two hand-blown multicolor glass beads. This project is also a machine felting project. The pattern includes complete instructions regarding the construction of the beret. Email and Skype support are available if needed. This pattern is knit to gauge and requires approximately 4 to 5 ounces of any hand-spun yarn with 18 WPI and one skein of Sari Silk yarn which can be purchased from my Etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LadyHawkOfHeartland.
6 stitches/8 rows is equal to 1 inch. WPI 18.

Crafting has always been a lifelong activity for me. I started sewing while in Junior High School and from there moved on to knitting, crocheting, jewelry crafting, pottery, drawing, painting, soap making, writing poetry and romance novels, etc. Creating artistic objects is a very big part of my life and over the years I have really enjoyed mixing the art forms that I have learned and using them in creating OOAK FO's. Seems it is only natural that I use my artistic talents as I am from a family of artistic family members to include my father, several uncles and a few aunts. It has been an adventure to enjoy sharing my art with others. My most memorable experience has been the summers I spent teaching pottery to the children of my neighborhood in Myakka City. Those children have grown up now and moved on, and some still practice the pottery skills I have taught them.View all patterns by designer (5) »
