This was a fun and incredibly fast knit.


It looks OK on me, I guess. I’m not sure I’ll ever wear it in public. Despite my French heritage, I’m not really a beret kind of gal. Besides, no one can rock a beret like Ysolda.


It had a funny balloon-like shape before blocking, but after some time on my two-salad-plates-and-a-cereal-bowl blocking apparatus it has a nice crease in it.


I used a skein of Manos that I had lying around, so it was a stash buster too. I would recommend this pattern to anyone, particularly if you want to get more comfortable with short rows. It was a lot of fun!

  1. Hi Emilee! I’m one of the many who found you through Knitty, and wanted to let you know (now that the storm has died down) that I really enjoy your blog and pictures. I’m a first year physics grad student, so I sympathize with decreased knitting time…sigh… I actually have a ball of malabrigo chunky in my new school’s colors, and as soon as I can get my hands on the right size needles, I’ll be starting Foliage! Thanks for sharing the pattern! =)

  2. The hat looks great… I have the same ball of Manos, in the same colour, that I wanted to use for the same pattern! You’ve inspired me to go ahead and knit it up.

    By the way, I’m in the 3rd year of law school right now. I think most of my law friends would agree that first year is the toughest. Not to worry – we all made it through and it just gets better from here on. Best of luck!
