Beret of Purls

This little hat never made it to my blog, which is a shame, because I think it's kind of cute...

The pattern is Last Minute Purled Beret, from Wendy Bernard (of Knit & Tonic fame...and, by the way, her book "Custom Knits" is great!). The yarn featured here is one-of-a-kind, a rogue skein I picked up at Stitches East. It's 100% Merino, and knitted up beautifully.

Just one mod I'd make if I made this hat again... I'd knit the ribbing on smaller needles OR carry along a stretchy elastic thread to help keep the brim snug. Other than that, I consider it a success! Thanks, Wendy :-)
