I made the medium of Ysolda's Urchin, which is supposed to fit a 22 inch head. It came out way floppier and less structured than the pattern photo, even though I got gauge. It's more of a tam than a beret, but I like it better that way because it can hold all of my (very) curly hair!
The yarn is seafoam green with bits of blue and purple and even a shiny green thread plied! I seriously love this thing and all it's shiny multicolored goodness. The first time I wore it, a friend called it the glam rasta hat. :-)
A bit more about it at Ravelry.

If I had a hammer, I'd cover it with glitter.

Curly-haired knitters unite!

Anywhozzles, I love the colors in that yarn (and I consider sparkly a color). It's so festive!

That's really cute! I have a friend who would totally flip over something like that.

Ooh, it's lovely! I recently moved from San Diego to San Francisco and my hair is so curly here! I love it.

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
