Paris Beret and a Free* Pattern Offer

Named after the capital city where it is now commonly associated, the Paris Beret is a style of headgear worn by aristocrats (see painting below) and artists across Europe. Paris can be worn in many different ways or pushed to one side as it’s customarily done and is used by men and women today and throughout modern history. Beginning as well as advanced knitters can knit this hat in the round mindlessly for one’s self or a trendy gift for someone you love.  Starting today, I am offering the Paris Beret  pattern FREE*, for a limited time, *with the purchase of two or more patterns from our shop.  Free* pattern offer expires 12/10/10.

    I ordered your pattern for the Paris hat on 8/2/12 on Raverly–never heard a reply from you. Can you send instructions

      Hi, Barbara! According to my records, I sent the pattern through your email on 08/02/12. It must have landed in your SPAM folder as it does many times. I resent the pattern. LMK how it turns out.
