The perfect yellow beret

You didn't think I was going to go trekking over to Scotland without a fancy hat of my own now did you? If Galumph got one, and Tyger got one, I was certainly getting one!

Porom

I used the Porom pattern from Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed. It was a lovely, easy pattern to follow, and the schematics for the pattern are the best I've ever seen. I'm feeling rather chuffed with my lovely new lacey beret, I must say.

And it matches my coat. Heaven!

Project Details
Pattern - Porom by Brooklyn Tweed
Yarn - 2 balls of Debbie Bliss Rialto DK in colourway 23045, from Woolarium
Needles - 4mm and 5mm circulars (I used my longest circulars, and did the magic loop method, rather than using dpns)

  1. Love it! I adore yellow, I think it's the most happy colour of the world. Unfortunately I can't wear it without looking like I am going to faint any second. But still. Love it. And now I really wished I could knit :-)

  4. I will look out for the only three people wearing cosy hats in the whole of Scotland (summer is nearly upon us, you know, despite temperatures close to freezing last night) and be sure to give you a wave if you pass through Glasgow. Have a great trip :)
