Ever since Marlene Dietrich adopted the beret as a fashion statement in the 1920s, it has been a fixture both on the catwalk and off, returning to popularity time and again. Coniferous is a classically shaped beret with a ribbed brim and a cable pattern on top. The decreases are worked in the cable pattern and between cables creating a star shape. Knit in a worsted weight wool, it’s fun, chic, and deliciously warm.
