Courchevel includes two beret patterns for three different weights of yarn, so that you can create a timeless beret (or berets!) by using that special yarn purchase, or just by using what’s already in your stash! Knit the fingering weight version, shown here in a sleek slate colorway, for a beret that’s perfect for a weekend in the city. The luscious amethyst worsted weight version knits up quickly into a contemporary take on the classic beret, while the bulky weight beret is the ultimate in winter-white coziness. Each beret features written instructions for a simple textured knit-purl pattern.

Size
Each beret is meant to fit loosely and comfortably around an adult head of 20-22”. For a tighter fit or a smaller beret, you may reduce the suggested needle size.
