The Criss Cross Beret features a woven cable that is knit through itself, rather than simply crossed front to back. It is knit in the round from the bottom up, and is offered in two sizes, both equally slouchy. Wet blocking will give your beret its classic shape. This beret is part of a set of four pieces: Hat, beret, cowl, and fingerless mitts.
