Yes, this is the Willow Beret! The pattern is almost ready. It is more of a slouchie but still based on a beret pattern.
It is made from Super Springy by Raxor Yarns ( Raxor.com.au ) and fibers. The colour is Daintree. I just love knitting this yarn as the stitch definition is amazing and the drape…. well, silky is the best description. This is why the hat is more of a slouchie.
It was made for a friend whose visa expired and she had to leave the country. She was from Sweden and so the hat was made with a willow leaf pattern from an Estonian Haapsalu design.
It is a quick knit and was blocked over a large dinner plate.
The pattern should be available soon through Raxor’s site.
