This very simple little beret is perfect to use all the odd ends of sock yarn you have lying around. I designed it with self-striping yarn in mind, but I think it would also work beautifully with plain or variegated yarn and mixed colours leftovers.
It can be finished simply, with a very short
i-cord in traditional beret style, or even with a pompom or a tassel.
