Knitted beret!

Gave up on the crochet hat after three different Ravelry patterns failed to produce anything suitable. Decided I needed to investigate this so-called chunky yarn Tivoli Woolmix. Found a knitting pattern for Sirdar chunky (made a man's hat for my Dad last Xmas. It was rather small incidentally, he has a massive head (big brain he claims). Switched the needles for a size smaller because yardage was more, made the rib needles a further half size small (my rib is always way too loose) and at last I have mydesired grey hat to match poncho, sophisto scarf and cable gloves. Wore it yesterday on school run (one teacher striking, other not.)
