The inspiration behind this hat was the yarn. It had been purchased with the intention of being made into a pair of socks. As happens from time to time, the yarn had other ideas. It wanted to be a beret instead. The name came to be when I was looking at the finished beret and noticed how the different shades of red seemed to be "playing"...chasing each other round and round....from bottom to top. This is a wonderful hat for those colorful skeins of yarn that you simply love but aren't quite sure what to do with. The pattern is simple allowing the colors of the yarn to be showcased which will result in a very fun and striking hat. This would be a great pattern for handspun yarns as well.

I enjoy spinning, knitting, and quilting. I have a small spinner's flock consisting of 11 Shetland sheep, 3 Suri alpacas, 3 Huacaya alpacas, and 2 llamas who watch over them all. Finding patterns for using with handspun yarns hasn't always been easy. Since I primarily use my own handspun yarns (there are gift giving) I started dabbling with designing my own quite some time ago. I've received so many very nice comments about my original designs that I thought I would make them available for everyone. I try to write each pattern so that it can be used whether you use a handspun yarn or commercially purchased yarn. I also try to write each pattern so they are fun to knit...not frustrating. It is my sincere hope that everyone who uses one of my patterns enjoys knitting it as much I enjoy creating it. As for copyright...only the written instructions, photos, diagrams, charts are copyrighted. What you do with the finished item is strictly up to you. After all, you made it. =) So you can love it, sell it, give it away, or whatever else you would like to do with it. Happy Knitting!!
