Presenting... the Urchin Beret (which I'm realizing is a pretty common name for a beret?)







(excerpted from my blog)

I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick on size 17 DPNS (instead of size 19). Also, at the suggestion of someone on Ravelry, I added two increase rows (and their corresponding decrease rows, and all the knit rows in between), which really made it super floppy, the way I like it. After I finished, I realized the brim was a little too snug, so I stretched it with my hands, and now its a big too loose (and slightly heavy). But if I cover my ears with it, slightly, itll stay on my head.

Thanks for looking!

Very pretty!  I love how the stitch pattern looks with the yarn you chose: the spiral in the back looks really cool.
