Mack the Beret…

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.

You can track details on my Star Crossed project here.

As always, more snaps of what I’ve declared the Mack the Beret (for Mackenzie, nicknamed Mack, who don’t forget!, has a Mackenzie Makes column here exclusively for KK), at its flickr set.
