Verity by Ysolda Teague

I started knitting this last night & its on my head tonight
This beret was a dream to knit .The pattern was purchased from Ysolda Teague on Ravelry.
I thought this was going to be difficult to knit but I was proved very wrong.

The pattern had clear instructions both in written format & chart.I was pleased with the sizing & knowing I wear a size 58 cm at work I plumped for the medium.I used Debbie Bliss Fez in a shocking pink that was a Christmas present along with the handmade ceramic button that came from The Wool Bar in Worthing.I used slightly larger needles as I only had a 5mm cicular needle& the pattern stated to use a 4.5 mm.I must be a tight knitter.

The pictures show the beret just a few minutes after sewing it up so it isn't blocked yet.It may look better if I block it.

I love this Lilibet! I adore Ysolda Teague and have made her Rose red beret twice now in the gorgeous orkney angora she sells with the kit. Have you checked out her two collections of Whimsical Little Knits? Delightful!
