Red Alert

Tart Tosh Hat
Pattern:  Brambles Beret by Amanda Muscha from Knitty, Deep Fall 2010
Yarn:  Madelinetosh Vintage, colorway Tart.
Needles:  4 and 6
Comments:  I made the medium band and medium length.  With this yarn and needle the had came out a bit large. I think the small band would have fit me better.  The yarn has a nice solid hand the color is awesome.The pattern is well written.  I made on error in purling two together, but the mistake is hidden between the design.

22Aug update: As discussed on the Knitting ParadiseSM - Knitting and Crochet Forum I ran a row of single crochet around the CO row, 2 sc, then skip one around. It’s still a bit loose, but improved.

Love your color. I liked pattern so much that I knitted which is rather unusual for me.
