Another new pattern: Spotted Toadstool Beret!

The second of a number of new patterns is up on Ravelry!

Spotted Toadstool Beret. Cute, huh? Are you getting an idea of what the whole collection is about? This three-page pattern includes photos and written instructions for the spot stranded pattern and slip-stitch "gills." It's for baby (14.5" circumference), child (16" circumference), and large child/teen/small adult (18" circumference).

I had a dickens of a time getting the decreases for the beret shape to line up with the number needed for the repeat of the spot pattern. I think I've got it all right now, but if anyone feels like test knitting it in the smallest and/or largest size for me, I'd be happy to send you a free pattern (for the beret as well as the hedgehog mittens, or any other Looking Glass Knits for-sale pattern)! Just email me (my address is listed in the sidebar) and I'll send you the pdf's.

UPDATE: thanks to everyone who volunteered to test knit for me. Your help is much appreciated!
