So our next knit along is a cute beret that should knit up quickly. We're going to knit the Rustling Leaves Beret, designed by Alana Dakos, and included in the super-popular Coastal Knits book. We think this beret would make a lovely gift*.
It takes just 175 yards of fingering weight yarn and suggests Madelinetosh Sock (395 yards). That's right - a skein makes two! So find a friend and a skein you both love and make plans to join us!
