Brambles Beret

I love things that knit up quickly and easily. It’s a lot of fun to work on projects that require more thought and time but sometimes the quick is what you need. This beret for a friend was exactly that.

I swore I had enough yarn to make it. I got closer to the end and started praying I had enough. Finally though it was far too obvious that I didn’t have enough to finish the beret. So off we went to the store. They still had the same dye lot of the yarn that I’d bought a year ago! I wouldn’t have to start over from the beginning! And because I only needed about 20 yards of the Cascade 220 … I still have more than enough to make something for myself. Win!
