Super-chunky doesn’t necessarily mean super-clunky. When you knit a lace pattern with very bulky yarn, the
result is the best of both worlds; cozy thick and warm yet sweet and lacy. This beret is super-fast to knit
too, making it a great go-to gift hat. Indulge yourself and knit one in each of your favorite Rasta colors. The Birdseye beret is a squooshy hat that knits up quickly in a super bulky yarn. The bulk of the yarn provides texture and the yarn is highlighted with the simple twisted rib brim and eyelet fabric in the top.
This hat is a simple and very quick knit. A few rows of twisted rib create the brim and then the slouchy hat is worked in a simple 6 stitch lace repeat. The decreases continue the pattern right to the very top using 12 stitches per repeat.
