I was inspired by Slim and Marg to make one of these slouch berets
with the 'leftover-from-BETTNA' yarn. Crystal Palace TAOS, color 20:
When I took the beret off the needles, the stitch work was all wrinkly.
It certainly needed blocking!
How to block a beret?
Well, I dragged out round shaped 15" serving platter, turned it bottom side up...and put my beret over the bottom of the platter! Misted the tar out of it, left it overnight, removed the platter this morning. It didn't stretch out the ribbing! WhooHoo.
I'm letting the beret dry a bit more, by itself, on top of some towels that are on top of my SYLVI back. They're still just a bit damp.
The whole mess can 'cure' together for another day or two!
With the platter, bottomside up, inside the beret:
Off the platter this morning!
