As winter recedes and spring rejuvenates, Kraftworkin’ Kitsch finally brings you one of the final hats created this season: The Star Crossed Slouchy Beret by Natalie Lawson.
I’d seen this pattern several times and knew I wanted to knit it up; but it wasn’t until my good friend Mackenzie and I took a trip to her local knitting hole in Providence, Fresh Purls, and saw one knitted up in a beautiful eggplant colorway of the Austermann Natura yarn that I decided it was a must make: for her.
She modeled the sample several times in store, I squealed with delight, and she picked out a skein of Natura she liked. Away I knit. And finally, the snaps are in, which means I can finally (!) gift it out to her. Even though winter is on the back burner, I think this would be an excellent springtime nip in the air beret, as well as an excellent fall accessory. Plus, there’s always next winter.
Knitwear never dies in these parts.
