Felted Shetland Beret - from Churchmouse

This simple beret happened quite by accident. We were re-scaling our favorite beret in Shetland dk and it turned out comically large. Hey, we thought, might as well felt it! The result was pretty cool. And remarkably soft after all the washing. Then we thought, wouldn't finer Spindrift be even nicer felted? And indeed it was. Lightweight. Lofty. Not too warm. We bet you won't make just one.
