Cherry Beret

Combine a gorgeous yarn and a beautifuly  written pattern and this is what you get:
Pattern:  Autumn Vines Beret by Alana Dacos
Yarn: Madelinetosh Pashmina

Modelling her new beret is Lillian, my mother-in-law.    She had requested for a new toque, so this was what we choose.  She was very pleased and  it looks great on her.

 Alana Dacos has great patterns and I wanted to try the Madelinetosh Pashmina, so this was a perfect match.    The yarn is hand dyed, this colour is called "cherry" but it's not anywhere near being red.   Somewhere between dark rose, burgundy tones..there is a touch of lavender through out as well. 

Makes for a very feminine, soft  beret than you can wear through out the year.
