Since finishing my full-time job a couple of months ago, I've had a chance to sort through the excess bits and pieces we've received and I've found some pretty cool stuff ... things that I'd really love to share with you over the coming weeks.
I found this Beret pattern in an old pattern book - unfortunately there wasn't a date in the book but my guess is it's from the 1960's. Isn't that just the cutest face? I'm not so sure if I like the beret, but I love those cheeks!
The pattern called for 'fingering yarn' which I'd not heard of before. Apparently it's referring to yarn of a certain weight, and is often called sock yarn. The needle size means this beret would be soft and delicate ...just suitable for this cute little one!
