On Saturday of our retreat, we had a swap. I had knit for Meagan, but I was a little nervous about my project. I made Corella in Malabrigo Arroyo, and I thought the color and shape would look great on Meagan, but I wasn’t sure if she was a beret person. It turned out that she loved it, and she modeled it for me for the blog! I’m really happy with how it looks on her.
The pattern was a fun knit and easy to follow, but I made a few mods. The crown decreases were way too rapid for my taste. Over 20 decreases every other round? No thanks. I was planning on just adding more rounds in between the decrease rounds, but in order to maintain the look, I ended up winging the whole thing. Some decreases are still every other round and some are every fourth round. Overall, I like the way my modification turned out, and the Arroyo gets two thumbs up from me. I really liked working with that yarn.
