This extra thick slouchy beret is a quick knit, and absolutely sure to keep your head warm this winter. We’ve already been wearing this hat, and it’s practically wind-proof! Why not add some frosty leaves to your knitwear this winter, and add some delicate colour to your winter walks?

The hat is constructed with a folded brim, adding structure and warmth. The body of the hat uses stranded knitting to showcase an elegant leaf pattern and provide an extra-thick layer to ward off any arctic chills.

The yarn used is a 2-ply wollen spun yarn, so the finished project is lighter and more effective at holding warmth than its worsted spun counterpart. Any yarn of a similar weight will work, but to get the same loftiness, ask your LYS owner about wollen-spun yarns.

Errata: Switch to larger needle when you reach to body of the hat! Sorry that I didn’t catch this earlier:)

Please feel free to message me with any errata :)
