When Things Come Together

Not long ago I decided to make another beret for  Jim's mom.  She really enjoyed the first beret I made her a couple of years ago and wears it constantly.   I had in my mind what I wanted, and being that this time of year there are lots of toques, slouches to be found, but that wasn't her style.

Once I started reading the Ravelry notes from other knitters who made this (this is the part that can confuse me)  it appeared that this hat might be big.    So I followed one persons suggestion to knit the brim in the small size and increase to adults size later.  So glad I did as I can see it would have been too big for my mother-in-law.  To be honest I feel I could have gotten away with making this all in the smaller size.

Yarn:  Jamieson & Smith together with Rowan Kidsilk Haze

I was so happy to get such a great photo of Lillian with her new Beret it looks so great on her !   Very soft and feminine.  Lillian is very happy with it, bonus ! 


p.s. it just happened the day she received her beret..she was wearing the exact shade of lilac as her hat. Perfect photo.
