Teardrop Angora Beret, c. 1950s

I love the way 1950s knitting patterns are styled – everyone looks like a high-fashion model, and you can too if you just knit this jumper/cardigan/dress/beret.

This some-what bizarre beret pattern is from Woman’s Illustrated Gift Booklet No. 2 (Autumn Knitting), and would only need 2 balls of Patons Fuzzy Wuzzy Angora – thats about 30 grams of a fingering weight angora.

What a cheap yet luxurious present for someone – its nearly time to start Christmas knitting…
