I just fell in love with this yarn when I found it at Noe Knit. Crystal Palace Creme is a silk-wool blend, and has just the perfect amount of fuzzy-halo-ness for a beret. But what really got me is the color. Not quite mustard, but not quite gold, it’s so pretty and surprisingly versatile.
I had trouble finding an appropriate beret pattern to really show off the yarn, so I created this lovely cabled beret pattern. The shape is softly rounded, so it looks great pulled down low to keep your ears warm, and it’s a quick and satisfying knit.
