FOs: crocheted and knit berets

As I have already stated, I love berets. But I also love procrastinating and being just a lazy bum. That’s why it took me ages to post about these two I made. The one you see below, in the left, is crocheted with two different yarns. I had this pattern that required thicker yarn, which I hadn’t. I wanted to make a neutral, oatmeal colored beret, but for some reason I paired this colour with pink. It doesn’t look too bad when you see it, but I’m not a fan of the colour, so I’ll be giving it to a friend that LOVES pink. Oh, and the pattern was from some blog but I lost it after getting strated, so I had to improvise the most part of it.

The one in the right was made with a pattern creadted by Natalie Larson from Strands of Me. Please, disregard my pouting face. I do look like that when I don’t smile, ugh. Anyway, I loved the beret and the pattern, but mine did not ended up as slouchy as hers. So I ‘m making another one, this time in brown, to see if changing the yarn will make it better.
