Liane knit up a Sunset Cabled Beret in Malabrigo Chunky, it's got a lot more body than the baby alpaca did (original yarn used in the pattern. to make it slouchy add an extra cable pattern repeat before decreasing.
A perfect, Prissy Little Cashmere Button Beret in Lana Grossa Pashmina. I'm just not a pink person, but the hat is great for those who prefer the non-descript look. Maybe in grey for John's Sister-in-law? I had a lot of the second ball left, more than enough to make something else (a beret for a little friend?). I am dying to make a bella clava in this pink cashmere.
This one, a Bulky Beret in Malabrigo Aquarella, did not look the way I had hoped, I'm going to either git it anotehr try in another shade or rip it back and give it anotehr go. It is too short, even for my little head. The colour isn't mine either, but that is neither here nor there. As you can see, Pluto is having a snuggle day. :-)
