The beret takes advantage of ribbing and texture for an understated design.

The simple stitch patterning in all the coordinated accessories in the Dash set adds modern and understated sophistication to any wardrobe. Plus, they can be unisex to boot! The cowl, beret and mitts are appropriate for knitters of all skill levels and is worked in the round.

Coordinating patterns Dash Cowl and Dash Mitts are sold separately as individual patterns.
