Or, according to the pattern, Vintage Allure Beret. Meet my latest finished (important note, I have many more unfinished) knitting project.

Hat on head

It’s a free pattern that can be found here. It’s a beret that features 8 cables and it is knit in the round using mostly purl stitches. I really liked knitting it, since it’s a fairly fast project you can see it coming to completion. I also really liked the colour red that I used. I think I’ll probably make it again, but then I’ll purl the decreases instead of knitting them, so they hopefully blend in a bit more, I now have 16 ridges. You can look at my project on Ravelry here. Also, this is the hat when it’s flat.




I’ve worn it already and it is really nice. I used to pins to keep it connected to my head (hard winds that day) and it held up perfectly. I also think the red and my hair are a nice combination. Now, I’ll continue with my sweater, that will hopefully be finished this winter…
