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.

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.
