The Watersport hat is a traditional beret worked in the round from the brim and up. It features slipped stitches and eyelets which I have combined to create a gentle swirl that continues into the tip of the crown. It is a timeless, feminine design with a contemporary twist.
The pattern is knitted in Malabrigo Worsted, a soft single yarn with great stitch definition.
Intermediate - knitting in the round, knit, purl, simple decreases and increases and cables, and finishing.
