This is a quickie that I cranked out at the last minute for DD#2. I wasn't sure if she'd like it or not, but she's wearing it today. I figure that's a good sign.
The yarn is Farmhouse Yarns, Andy's Merino that I bought at Purl last week. This yarn is really, really soft and the colors are spectacular. I couldn't buy just one. Three colors came home with me, and I am dreaming about going back to get more.
I used two colors for this beret, "Pot Luck!" and "Brick", alternating them for each round. I've got at least half a skein of each left so I'm planning to make matching mittens.
Rather than spend precious knitting time searching for a pattern, I made this up as I went along. Working hats from the top down makes this very do-able.
