beaufort two beret


On Beaufort wind scale Beaufort two means light breeze: small wavelets, crests glassy - wind felt on face, leaves rustle. It was the first thing on my mind while knitting my beret, since the pattern resembled small wavelets or rustling leaves. It might also be the teal blue color of the yarn that made me think more of wind and water.

I used honeycomb slip-stitch pattern in my beret and I think it worked nicely. It's warm and feels somehow rustic - it must be the texture. And it's not too thick. Perfect for late fall and early winter, I think.


Pattern: my own
Yarn: Madil Yarns Loden
