A gorgeous, red beret made from fine alpaca yarn with a twist of gold thread to add a glimmer. This is crocheted from a very old pattern, which is simple, warm and easy to wear.
Alpaca is a wonderful wool for keeping you warm without thick or heavy yarn.
Yarn: Orielle - Louisa Harding
97% Alpaca, 3% Polyester gold thread
I inherited a red beret from my grandmother when she died, some years ago. I wore it for years and, while rifling through my granny's old crochet patterns one day, found the pattern. It's simple, practical and pretty (and very, very old).
It is the only hat I ever wear, and the only beret pattern I've ever used (I can't find anything that suits me quite as well), so I crochet them regularly, for new accessory sets for myself, and to replace ones I've lost...
I found this yarn in a sale, and it is quite rare in that it has a sparkle intertwined with a natural yarn (most sparkly yarns are mostly synthetic). It knits to a very light and gentle material, yet the alpaca yarn means that it's incredibly efficient in keeping you warm without the bulk.
