I’ve always fancied the idea of wearing a beret but have never managed to pull it off😪

I found this yarn

Now this yarn says it’s made from recycled ♻️ bottles so I thought I would see what I could do with it. It seemed quite bulky for dk so I took time on working out my tension and then had a go at making a beret. After lots of knitting and lots of frogging and then more knitting I came up with this:

My tension was done in stocking stitch, I probably should have done a swatch in rib as well as it is a bit loose or my head isn’t as big as I thought it was🤣

I have quite enjoyed working on something from scratch and I am gearing up to work on the rib to improve the fit. I’m intrigued to know how all those water and pop bottles were turned into yarn though 🤔 I would hope it would keep your head dry as its all plastic☔️

Woolly wishes,

Jane ♡♡♡
