This slouchy beret is knit “flat” by first working a buttonhole placket, then combining a herringbone stitch, short row shaping and a garter stitch border to work the hat around the circumference of the head (rather than top to bottom or vice-versa.) Finally, a garter stitch button placket is added to which you can sew your favourite buttons.
