Felted Shetland Beret by Churchmouse


"Be prepared to take requests."

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.

2 skeins Jamieson Shetland Spindrift (115 yds/105m each).
Or approx. 230 yds/210m of an equivalent fingering-weight Shetland yarn.

US 6 (4mm) 16"/40cm circular and double-points or size to get gauge.
US 5 (3.75mm) 16"/40cm circular, or one size smaller than size to get gauge.

22 sts/30 rows = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch on larger needles, before felting.

Medium adult: approx. 21"/53cm around band.
