One Skein Project

March 01, 2013 by Julianna
The spring is coming, it is time to fresh up our looks by adding color to our outfits. What plays a big role in woman's outfit and can affect her look in millions of different ways? ....

I think we all agree that accessories play a very important role in completing our look. You can add chic and charm to your outfit with the shawl or with the scarf, a nice beret will make you look very romantic and sensitive, pair of cozy gloves with help to create a sensitive look...Just let your imagination and inspiration work.

The summer is over, even though the fall is a beautiful season it not warm anymore, the days are getting shorter and the windes are getting not only stronger but colder as well. That's when the accessoties come to play the leading role. 

From my previous project I had a 3/4 of a skein left of Cascade 220 in a wonderful cabernet color, it had to stay on a shelf for a while before I found a pattern that I could clearly see on this yarn. I decided to go with Star Crossed Slouchy Beret. It is a very easy pattern, good for any level of skills. It is in fact easy to follow and gives  you a  hat in less than three hours. It is both elegant and sporty depends just on your desired look.

The pattern calls for a worsted weight yarn and US size 11 needles, the choice of yarn depends only on your  preferences, it can be either Malabrigo or something as simple as Cascade 220. Cascade gives a high stitch definition and works well on such projects as this.
