FO: BLACK FOREST BERET

I had another HAT-ATTACK Tuesday night!






Knit on Tuesday, blocked all day Wednesday on dinner plates! Hope you like it! I have knit it once before using icy blue ROWAN Polar.

THE YARN: BLACK FOREST by Naturwolle
GAUGE: 13st=4"
YARDAGE USED: 97 yds for all 3 colors total
(the ribbing band is solid chocolate, the body of the hat alternates Trapper and Hazelnut)
THE PATTERN: Knit Beret
THE BOOK: JUST HATS (for sale on Amazon for about $9)


So now I have 3 types of hats for my cape: Happy Trails (the dorky tassel hat), The Unoriginal Hat, and this Beret!

This book has really easy hat patterns, and I like the fact that they are knit from the ribbing up to the top. I just hate starting at the top with 12st and dpns...and working down. Aaargh. Even tried magic loop for one of those types of hats...and got all confused at to increases placement! Frogged that mess! There are too many pattern options to stay with a pattern drives me batty!

That's very cute, so nice to have a choice of things to wear with your cape. You really got your money's worth out of that yarn.

I'm still ASTOUNDED at how fast you can get things out.

Yup! I have 3 hats I can wear with the CAPE. The Happy Trails hat (kinda dorky, but cute); The Unoriginal Hat; and this beret!

I'm gonna wear the dork hat to church this winter, just one time...on a really cold day...and see what comments I get! You watch! The dork hat will get more comments than the others!

My hair is short enough to get away with wearing the dork hat from home to my seat in church...then yank it off and fluff my hair real quick with a little comb!

Stay tuned!

Betcha I get "orders" for it!

Wow! I have seen all your FOs lately and all the hats and sweaters are really great. Do you work on everything simultaneously?

Not intentionally. I kinda leapfrog my projects. While one major project is going through the blocking stages, I will begin the next major project.

As for the hats, they were really one evening projects. All but one were bulky yarn, and very easy patterns. I guess I'm what you could call 'motivated'. I like that word better than 'obsessed'!
