Berets are said to be ‘in’ this season, but they never really go out of vogue. Classic and elegant, this version has a gentle drape and using sock yarn, is light yet warm enough for spring evenings. Constructed sideways by knitting on straight needles, using short rows for shaping and provisional cast-on then Kitchener stitch for a perfect, seam-free finish.

This Hat pattern is ideal for those who love a different technique, or who loathe working in the round or fighting with dpns. The gentle cables provide an elegant and stable brim, whilst the body with its eyelets provide a casual, generous shape.

Pattern is provided in both written and charted format and is knit from side to side.
