Going Around Again

I really liked that pinwheel pattern that I made the coaster out of and I wondered if I could use it for something else? I also have a bunch of sock yarn that I didnt necessarily have to make socks with. Put the 2 together and I came up with this beret....

Its easy, although the sc makes it a bit slow when you get nearer the end. I used Serenity Sock Weight with a size "G" hook. I love the way the yarn follows the rhythm of the pattern. The brim I improvised with alternating dc and sc rows, decreasing as I went along. Then I crab stitched around the edge to finish it off. I am going to keep it for a Christmas gift and I already started another beret using Elann Esprit, which is too thick for crocheted socks. And that one I am keeping for myself. :)
Crochet, Away!
