A Black Beret for Me

I'd been knitting so many hats for other people, that I decided it was time to reward myself with one of my own (well, actually, this was the second one, but I don't have pictures taken of the first one yet). I used the same pattern that I did for Jenn's hat, but because I used a self-striping yarn on Jenn's, you couldn't see the pattern very well. So I decided to go with a solid color for mine.

The pattern for this hat is called Rose Red. I just love this pattern. It's a tad tricky...actually, it just requires my attention instead of watching TV, but it turns out looking so intricate.

To get the shape right, I blocked this hat around a dinner plate...

...and on top of a small bucket.
