A co-worker of mine, Alissa, brought me two skeins of yarn and asked me to make her a beret. After sending her a couple patterns to look at, she settled on the Polaris Hat from Lion Brand Yarn (you'll need to create a username and password to look at the patterns here).

Obviously, this is the LBY hat. I was too lazy to take a photo of the hat I finished!  Grin

I just got done with this hat this evening, after watching a bunch of Doctor Who episodes, both downloaded and some on YouTube. I was watching both Baker and Tennant to pass the time.

The yarn Alissa brought me was Lion Brand Homespun in Pearls (#412). The hat didn't even need one full skein, so I'm going to suggest she pick out another hat. One skein of this yarn is 185 yards. The pattern actually calls for Lion Brand Amazing in Ruby. The Pearls is a pretty boucle yarn, but instead of Pearls, I think I'd rename it as Mushroom.

This is a very easy pattern (actually is rated as "Easy") and worked up so simply. I can't wait to give it to her tomorrow.

Thanks for rating this pattern!  I need some new hat patterns...your friend is lucky that you offered to make her another one!
