Lately I've been making berets left, right and centre in my quest for a fail-safe crocheted beret pattern. Last night, however, I stumbled across this Popknits pattern for a Fair Isle Beret and instantly fell in love. It was motivation enough to start teaching myself how to knit in fair isle, and here are the results! No-one told me about reading the first line of the pattern chart forwards, and the next line backwards... but apart from that I figured out how to add in colours and create pretty pictures. Feeling very proud.
