Saturday Beret #Crochet Along with Ellen Gormley!

Hey, everyone, and Happy 2013!  Looks like we made it into this new era of kindness and creativity, so let's celebrate by crocheting a beautiful beret in Bruges lace!

The pattern was fun and easier than it looks!
Ellen Gormley is an accomplished crochet designer who has authored many pattern books.  She's also a television personality and a member of the Crochet Guild of America (CGOA).  She has sold over 200 patterns.  That's impressive!

But guess what?  She's also really nice.  I have been fortunate enough to get to know Ellen through her group on Ravelry, but she's also crafting all over the web.  Check out GoCrochet.com to see what she's been doing.

I don't remember where I first heard about Clever Crocheted Accessories, but I do remember thinking that the cover hat was beautiful and wondering how it was done.  Then I learned that Ellen had designed the hat using a beautiful technique she has been exploring called Bruges lace.  All signs pointed to one thing:  Crochet Along!   So we got one going!  Here's Ellen's post about it on Go Crochet. 

And, the hat made the cover of a completely awesome book!
You know you want a hat like that, so join us on the Saturday Beret CAL Ravelry thread!
