Autumn Vines Beret

AV8 Framed

My Autumn Vines Beret pattern is finally done!
It took a long time to get it just right but I couldn't be more pleased with the end result.
This design is tied with Cedar Leaf as my favorite published pattern.

I love how the cabled leafy design looks like a tangled vine traveling up the sides of the hat. 
It was a very interesting and fun stitch pattern to work up.

The yarn that I used, Becoming Art Cielo Sport, complements the design so nicely. It shows off the textured pattern very well and the subtle highlights in the color bring the pattern to life.
