Miss Speedy Needles cast this beret onto her size sevens when we pulled out for our overnight camping trip. It was finished by the next day. Jealous!
She used a beautiful Rowan Tapestry yarn which contains wool and soy fibers and is the tiniest bit variegated, as you can see from the striping on the hat. She chose the pattern from the many options at Ravelry. And when I asked her if she ended with the right number of stitches, she looked at me funny. She always does, I guess.
