Inst.Grat.  That’s what I have written on top of my printed copy of Molly

Instant Gratification is a phrase that every knitter loves.  This beret turned out to be exactly that.  Cast on, knit, cast off, blocked, photographed all within a few days.  That’s a big deal in my knitting world of slow.  Best part is that Kiki loves it and allowed me to take pictures even though the temperature outside was hovering just above freezing.  I think that’s the best compliment she could give me in her own toddler way and bonus points when she insisted on wearing it all day.  Now that’s a winning knit!


This is a great project and fantastic to use up leftover sock yarn.  And what’s even more amazing is that Alana has written up the pattern for a large range of sizes – baby noggin to large adult sized head – doesn’t get more fantastic than that!  Love everything about this pattern and the swirliness that the decreases create on the crown of the beret.  I will definitely knit this pattern again.
