Fall Beret
This pattern was a very quick and easy knit. I started it yesterday and finished it this morning. We have similar hats at work and I admired them, but thought "I can knit that and make it better!". So here is my "Fall Beret" which is actually from a pattern called Spring Beret (available on Ravelry as a free download). It was originally made in cotton, but a cotton beret would be fairly impractical in Canada in the fall.

I used Moda Dea Washable Wool in black and size 8 and 9 circular needles. I used DPNs to do the decreases on top as I thought it would be easier than what the pattern suggested (a variation on Magic Loop, which I have never done).

Check out some of the photos on Ravelry for a better idea of what the actual pattern looks like. The black yarn doesn't show off the pretty leaf pattern very well.

*Please excuse the self taken photos, I was home alone!*

Black! Such a popular color (or noncolor as I call it sometimes :-) ), but so hard to work with and then like you said you can't see all the work you went to that well. I'm sure the patterns show up much better in real life. You did a nice job and the hat is very cute on you.
