FO - Louisa Harding Aurora Beret

This is my first thing NOT a scarf… and for such a simple pattern I had a lot of trouble with it. But that’s what I get for attempting increases and decreases at 3 am while my husband is watching Beerfest on tv.

Anyway, I’m not happy with my color selection. I guess that’s a lesson learned: Don’t try to color match when ordering yarn from eBay. I used the following colors:
Grace -#06
La Salute Quattro - #04

No, I haven’t done the matching rosette yet. I need some longer needles before I do.

And I hate the way berets look on me. I should have thought of that first.

the hat on me

hat by itself

Nice hat!

LOL. Thanks. I think I’m going to have to call it the “raspberry swedish chef muppet hat”.

that’ll be a mouthful!!! LoL

Very nice!

BTW…you can post Flikr pictures here. Just choose the size of 800 pixels on the longest side. You’ll get more response if you do. :wink:

It looks very soft!

The hat fits you which is an impressive accomplishment in a first hat. My first hat didn’t manage to do that.

:thumbsup: it looks great!!
