This slouchy beret can be made to fit a toddler, a child, or an adult.

Sizing is accomplished by changing the weight of the yarn.

The Toddlersโ€™ size requires fingering weight yarn.
The Childrensโ€™ size requires sport weight yarn.
The Adultsโ€™ size requires DK weight yarn.

The subtle stitch pattern incorporates twisted stitches and decreases that are cleverly-yet simply-worked at the same time.

It can be worn slouchy, or blocked for a โ€œcrisperโ€ beret finish.

Note: My knitting tends to be a bit looser than average. So, while I do give a recommended needle size, be sure to work a gauge swatch.
