I was looking to use up some stash yarn, so I flipped through the book and came upon the "Mary-Kate". My acrylic is not nearly as glamorous as the yarn in the book, but I think it came out alright. See what you think.
When I finished the hat, I tweeted “I made the "Mary Kate" from _Pop Goes Crochet_ by @vickiehowell today. It's cute but if you style it wrong, you look like a huge mushroom.”
Then Vickie Howell tweeted “VickieHowell@artlikebread Mushrooms are the new black. ;). I'd love to see a pic of your finished Mary-Kate beret!”
Um, what? Vickie Howell tweeted at me? Well, alright!! So I tweeted back, “@VickieHowell OK! I'll post one on my blog!! :o) It really is cute, and it was fun to make, too. Thanks!”
The best way to wear it is with a Mary-Kate attitude.
