Rustling Leaves Beret KAL.

Can you believe it's November already? Can you believe Starbucks already has their Christmas cups? Yes, and if you're like a lot of knitters, you're thinking about knitting gifts.

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!

Of course any fingering weight yarn would work and we have plenty of other options in all kinds of colors.

We're going to cast-on at Knit Night this week (Thursday, November 10) and we'll continue knitting Friday afternoons during our "normal" KAL time.

(*and of course we think it's fine if you knit this one for yourself!)
