Testament of Youth first got me interested in WW1 - I hope this is half as good as the mini series and book.


I also LOVE this hat! wonderful post ~ it has been a fabulous armchair travel to look at so many wonderful projects, trips, books, and treasures!

Shona, I havent seen a period beret pattern like this one, but I suppose you could cobble one together out of a favorite tam pattern I think Ann Budd has a recipe in one of her Knitters Handy books, and there are two possible sources at Knitty, http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEdf13/PATTdreamingofshetland.phphttp://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter07/PATTtam.htmlonly work it in garter stitch. I would start with a strip of garter sewn or grafted to itself to make a ring, then pick up stitches along one edge to work the rest of the hat.Best,Jeanne
