Green Beret

Project Description

What was your source for this knitting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Craftsy September Knit-Along Link to website or photo www.craftsy.com/supplies/mystery-workshop-club-september13/2595 What advice would you give someone starting this project? This was not the yarn that came with the workshop. I didn't have quite enough, so I cut out 10 rows of the body chart. The yarn is also super-bleedy, so it took a lot of rinsing when I blocked it. I wish the brim were a little more snug, but it works. This is a good project to try lace, cables and knitting a doubled brim.

Thanks! It blocked out a little looser than I'd like, but c'est la vie.

I love this beret! You do beautiful work, Katherine!

Thanks! I might make another with smaller needles for better sizing.
