Designed for the 4! Oz! Challenge!, this pattern includes directions for spinning an aran weight, chain-plied yarn and knitting a top-down slouchy beret. The yarn is spun to obtain stripes of similar size all the way down the hat. The stitch pattern breaks up the striping even more.

Skills needed: knitting in the round, purling, slipping stitches, twisted stitches/cabling, increasing and binding off.

Stitch pattern is presented in both written and charted forms.
