Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo HeartStrings #A96 Felted Beret Link to website or photo www.heartstringsfiberarts.com/feltedberet.shtm What are you most proud of? These berets are great for using up small amounts and samples, as the mixing of colors just leads to exciting, unique combinations. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Pattern is sized for Small (up to hat size 7) [Medium (hat sizes 7 to 8), Large (hat size 8 or larger)]. Allow approximately 4-1⁄2 [5, 5-1⁄2] ounces of wool or wool blend (not superwash) spun into a 2-ply worsted weight knitting yarn at 10 12 wraps per inch. Loosely spun is better than a tight twist. Yarn is used doubled throughout. 3 stitches/inch (before felting) on size US 11 / 8 mm needles suggested. Easy machine felting instructions are included.
