I've just completed another beret. I love this Dream in Color Classy yarn in Ruby River color. It's really a dream to knit with. No splitting and very springy yarn. I've come to realize that red is my color. The real color of the beret is in the last two pictures. I will be back to post live model shots of me wearing my berets.
In the meantime, I wanted to share with you what the beret looks like mounted on a 11" dinner plate. I placed two sheets of paper towels between the plate and the beret to give it some body.
I take my mister and spray water over the entire hat. I used my hands and fingers to rearrange the lace pattern
Sitting on top of a can of diced tomatoes. This way the beret can dry quickly and evenly.
