Hats, Hats and more Hats

Yep, you guessed it another Star crossed slouchy beret, this one is for my DD using the sparkle yarn in black, this makes 3 for her and a total of 8. I have to make one more pink one for my niece in California and then hopefully I'm done. These hats have ended up in Chicago, Dayton and soon California, maybe I should rename it the Star Crossed Traveling Beret.
I really wanted some type of slouchy hat for myself but the Star Crossed one seemed a tad young for me but I found the Tuva Slouchy Beret and I think I have a winner. This is the same yarn I used when I made my very first knitted sweater. A paper plate is great for blocking this type of hat. I didn't have a size 4 circular so I adjusted the stitches and used a size 8.


Happy Crafting.

Very nice berets! I love the black, sparkly one! What a great accessory to pair with a cute outfit.

I love these hats. I went to the funeral of a 94 year old lady yesterday. She knitted hats for people all the time. Several people wore theirs to the funeral and the preacher talked about it. So, you may be creating something that will be cherished beyond your knowledge.
