Cashmere Beret - Lang Nova Version

Cashmere Beret - Lang Nova Version

"Soft and stretchy!"

Our Churchmouse Beret pattern invites experimentation. Whenever we encounter a new fingering-weight yarn, we try it in our beret pattern to see how the yarn will behave. Will the resulting cap be light and pert, or dense and warm? Lang Nova creates an incredibly soft and stretchy beret. Because of the stretchiness of the yarn, this project needs a needle 1-2 sizes larger than what would commonly be used for most fingering weight yarns. And a needle with a little stick (hello bamboo!) will help you keep your stitches nice and even.

The flattering shape looks great on men and women alike. And the sophisticated color palette of Lang Nova makes it easy to find a pleasing shade. Grab the pattern (if you don't already own it) and yarn below; one skein is all you need.
