PATTERN DETAILS

When our winter comes, it's not usually a slow leading up. Fall is our shortest month. Sometime in October we usually get snow, which leaves us scrambling for our hats and scarves, we need them NOW! Brrr. This hat is a breeze to knit, and is sure to keep you warm when those breezes pick up into winds. Winter can leave us all feeling blah, but shiny beads on a classic over-sized beret is just fun! This hat is done in the round so other that the band, there is no purling, and the decreases just before and after the beads give the otherwise plain knit beret a bit of a pattern, effortlessly.

I’m Erron, a mother juggling my family of 6, volunteer work, a small family farm, friends and relatives, all while maintaining my sanity and giving my creative self an outlet by knitting. I live in the heart of knitting territory, the Canadian Pairie. While gorgeous, and the only place I want to call home, the temperatures here can dip a little below freezing (okay… some days a lot below freezing, but 1 or 2 days at -40 builds sturdy people). The summers are warm and the sun shines in skies as vast as you’ve ever seen, they are also rather short. Sweater weather is about 10 months a year, and even some summer nights call for being wrapped in some type of knitwear. The perfect climate for this knitter. I believe knitting is for everyone, and everyone can learn how. There is nothing as rewarding as creating something beautiful in your spare time. I have knit miles of yarn, learned and taught others numerous techniques, succeeded and failed, and learned to be very good at what I knit. I look forward to sharing my best with you. Happy Knitting!
