I have been crocheting since my sewing machines have to be serviced. I bought this variegated brown yarn from my local yarn shop for this beret. I love this yarn because it's a chunky weight and I can crochet this beret in no time. I love the lacy pattern but I am not keeping it. It's going to my friend. She loves hats of every kind and wears one every day. That's all for today. Have a super day!
