The Beatnik Beret

Beatnik Beret (3)

I know nearly three weeks have passed since I wrote about my inspiration for the Beatnik Beret, but it feels as if it was just yesterday. This project was like a whirlwind for me. It when from conception to physical item and then to my testers in less than three days. And now here I am, releasing it to the world. It helped that I had the perfect yarn on hand, Universal Yarn’s Uptown DK, but what really made the whole process go along so quickly was the simplicity. The pattern utilizes two stitches: sc and sc-blo. They give it this great texture and a mindless repeat, which makes it a nice Sunday afternoon project.
