Candy Gossamer Beret
For this slouchy beret, Katiebeans used a pattern for beginners that is very similar to the pattern she first learned years ago to make blankets. Essentially, this beret is continuous rounds of 3 dc in 2 ch sps. After it reached size, Katiebeans did rounds with intermittent dc2tog and sc2tog, finishing with several rounds of sc.
Katiebeans used 2 skeins of alpaca yarn. When she shops for yarn she likes to call it, "alopecia," which makes her look really hip and yarn-savvy in front of the KnitNY employees.
