Never Not Knitting Molly Beret PDF
The Molly Beret from Never Not Knitting is fun to knit and fun to wear
with its lace brim and colorful stripes. Since the pattern is offered in sizes
ranging from baby to adult, this is a hat that everyone in your family can
enjoy. Molly calls for a fingering weight alpaca which results in a warm,
lightweight piece but this hat could also use up those leftover sock yarns.
Work Molly in a solid color for a more conservative style or stripe randomly
for a look all your own! The lace pattern is both charted and written out.
