honey beret giveaway


A new pattern! Honey Beret has been in the works for some time now, but it's finally finished. Cables and lace, interesting but not too complicated. I have updated the lace pattern quite a bit from the prototype and I think it is much better this way.

I'm so happy to be a part of this crafty community. Thank you for coming here and thank you for your interest in my patterns. I have seen so many great versions made and that's unbelievably amazing every time! So, a little something to give to you: The pictured beret is for one of you! To enter this giveaway, leave a comment before Thursday 25th of March.


This quickly knitted small beret is great for chilly weathers and it completes the Honey Cardigan with some matchy matchy feeling.

To fit size 51 (56) cm/20 (22)"
Yarn: 170 - 220 yards (150 - 200 m) of worsted weight yarn
Gauge: 18 stitches and 25 rows = 4 inches (in Stockinette stitch)
The pattern includes both charted and written instructions.

€2,90

I really love the cable pattern. It's chic and 'mod' and fun but simple, I like simple. I've already worn my Honey cardigan all over the place and it would be super awesome to have a matching beret, they are really popular this season! Keep up the good work and thank you!
