This luscious slouchy beret is worked from crown to brim with bulky yarn in circular Tunisian Crochet. Using a variety of Tunisian Crochet stitches, it is created using a double-ended crochet hook and two strands of yarn.

The Chainmaille Beret also takes advantage of the Tunisian Diagonal stitch not only to create a highly textured fabric, but to easily make the spiral pattern in the body of the hat without any required shaping.
