10ply Inca Spun 'Potato Peel Pie' Beret


This is a free pattern with purchase of the accompanying wool. Please only select 'buy now' if you have also added the relevant wool to your knitting basket.

I persuaded my husband to accompany me to come to the wonderful Victoria Cinema in Devonport to watch The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. Many years ago we had visited Guernsey, he was interested in World War II and had a childlike fondness of pigs!
Needless to say, my memory of reading the book was somewhat hazy, the Pig Club pig failed to feature, the war provided the backdrop for a love story and the filming was done in Devon and not Guernsey. My poor husband was the only bloke in the auditorium, watching in essence a ‘chick flick’ He did however make an astute comment… “I expect you will have plenty of ladies wanting to buy wool for knitting a beret”.
