Beret Lover

I've never been a huge wearer or lover of berets in the past but I notice I've been wearing them a lot lately.......must have something to do with having longer hair after years of very short locks..and the need to take the chill off over here in the windy islands.

The latest one off the needles is Porom by Jared Flood.....great pattern and great slouchy, lacey beret...this one made from some cashmere/angora/lambswool mix from the Isle of Skye.
As this is actually going to a friend of mine I may need to make another for myself!

I've been thinking about that hat, myself. Thanks for showing us how great it looks!

Hi, I purchased a beret pattern of yours from Ravelry and have a question, but your email bounced back. How do I reach you?

I think you need to convert to being a beret wearer -- that looks wonderful on you! If that heathery teal is the true color, it's lovely!

Ooh, very nice! Love the yarn color. I have favored berets a lot over the years, and they do go well with longer hair, plus are interesting to knit.

What do you think about berets for guys that have no hair?

Curious. (Honestly.)

No man, you need a flatcap.
