Churchmouse Beret Project - Titus Version

Churchmouse Beret Project - Titus Version

"Semi-sheer with a delicious drape!"

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? To our delight, Baa Ram Ewe Titus knits up into a lightweight beret that slouches with Parisian flair, flopped to the side over the ear. The flattering shape looks great on men and women alike.

You can pick up the pattern and some of the fabulous colors below, or go to Baa Ram Ewe Titus to see all the available shades of yarn.
