Remember the Aslan Trends yarn I was touting a few posts back? The beautiful jewel toned red? Well I started the star crossed slouchy beret with this great yarn, and it really started out looking fab, but the yarn’s varigated texture caused the hat to almost stand on end instead of slouch down the back. Needless to say, I scrapped the project and started again with a true worsted weight merino wool blend yarn. Other than a few slip-ups (that are virtually invisible), I’m very pleased with the outcome. Third hat down!
