Inspired by the bright colours of the Russula genus of mushrooms, this simple variation on a beret is easy to knit and can be worn in a variety of ways.

You will need about 1.3 -1.5 skeins of this yarn, but it also works well in other yarns that have soft colour changes to show off. For very best results, make your increases and decreases staggered so that you don’t get a swirl in the crown, this helps show off the yarn variegation.
