This is Gudrun Johnston’s Bousta Beret – a birthday present for Jane. I love the Horseshoe lace pattern, and the fact that the name – Bousta – means farm in Old Norse. It seemed like the right beret for Jane!
I used a felted alpaca tweed, Grignasco Tango, which I was sad to learn is no longer in production. I picked up this batch at River City Yarns while in Edmonton visiting my little sister. If you’re ever in the area, stop in. They have great staff and wonderful yarns.
