My Lovely has been asking for another knitted jumper. He claims the other one I made for him took over two years! That's not entirely untrue. It only took me about 6 months to make, but I suppose we did take 18 months to pick a pattern and yarn. The first one was a 1940s pattern, and so is this one! I love knitting vintage things.
The yarn is from Bendigo Woollen Mills and is a dream to work with. Like every other yarn I've used from there.
So I've finished this beret! It's my second attempt at this pattern, and might I say I'm much happier with this version than my first. It's very cute, simple to make, and looks suitably vintage for me. The whole beret is in garter stitch which means it was great for all the flying I've been doing for work.
I used some leftover stash yarn of mine from an old cardigan I made. However, still have a ball of it left. Annoying. Got to find something else very small to make. Maybe a baby thing?
