Loft / Silk Cloud Beret Project

Loft / Silk Cloud Beret Project

"Soft and lofty."

Our Churchmouse Cashmere Beret is so enticing to reyarn. As we started selecting yarns, a new combination literally fell into our hands: Brooklyn Tweed Loft held with Shibui Silk Cloud.

This reyarned version is just right–a little bit rustic, a little bit urban, lightweight, warm, and need we say lofty? And lustrous Silk Cloud adds just the right amount of softness to Loft’s rustic tweediness. Our berets here (from top to bottom) are in colors Field/Artifact, Graphite/Faded Quilt, and Velvet/Plume.

Grab the pattern below if you don't already have it, then select your color from the pretty, spring combinations below–one skein of each yarn comes in a reusable clear drawstring tote. Or visit the Shibui Silk Cloud and Brooklyn Tweed Loft pages to choose your own colors.

FINISHED SIZES
Small adult/large child: 19"/48cm around band.
Medium adult: 21"/53cm around band.

BAGGED PROJECT INCLUDES
1 skein Brooklyn Tweed Loft (275 yds/251m);
1 skein Shibui Silk Cloud (330 yds/300m).

YOU'LL ALSO NEED
Churchmouse Classics Cashmere Beret pattern (available below);
US 2 (2.75mm) 16"/40cm circular and double-point needles (or size to obtain gauge);
US 1 (2.25mm) 16"/40cm circular needles (or 1 size smaller than gauge size);
6 stitch markers (1 in a different color);
Darning needle to finish;
1 yd smooth, strong fingering-weight yarn;
10 (11)” dinner plate for blocking.

GAUGE
28 sts/38 rows = 4"/10cm in stockinette stitch.

While getting the correct gauge is important in determining your beret's finished measurement, the blocking steps are equally important. If you don't have a dinner plate with the proper diameter, consider cutting a proper-sized disc out of foam core or corrugated cardboard. It will come in handy if you ever want to re-block your beret, and for all the subsequent berets you will be asked to knit!
