Interweave Knits Accessories 2011: Linocut Beret by Quenna Lee

The preview of Interweave Knits Accessories went up last week and not only are we absolutely delighted buy the design on the cover (more on that later!), but are also excited about this beautiful beret featuring Canopy Fingering by Quenna Lee {rav link} {web link}.

The Linocut Beret {rav link} features a twisted rib, worked with the yarn held doubled, and then transitions in to a bold lace motif for the body. The top of the beret decreases into a star motif that resembles flower petals. Using just one skein of Canopy Fingering, this beret is the perfect project to knit as a gift - or as a special treat for yourself!
