A touch of France

I’ve knit myself a couple of berets recently. They took about a day each, and I love, love, love them. You may remember that I had a hat disaster which ended with me deciding to knit a lace beret? Here they are:

Sorbonne Hats

I call the pattern “Sorbonne”, because my husband told me I look like a student of French literature at the Sorbonne when I put it on.

I used a little over one 50 gram ball of Rauma Vamsegarn for each of them, and I’ve threaded some hat elastic through the ribbing on both to get that snug fit around the forehead.

They’re pretty fun both to knit and to wear, though. Especially if you pretend to be a student of French literature at the Sorbonne.

Edit: I have removed the pattern, as there are clearly issues with how I charted the pattern.

    I really like the look of this hat and I’d love to make it, but I downloaded the pattern and wasn’t sure what the symbols in the chart actually mean… Perhaps you could provide a key when you put it back up?

    Thanks and good work
