We are enjoying the very last days of summer in Germany and we had so many of them! Autumn wind will arrive soon, along with autumn colors! I’m wearing this beret and couldn’t be happier about the coming hat weather! All I wanted was a fluffy beret with some brioche stitches. To make it a fast knit I combined brioche with garter stitches using two matching colors! Pattern is easily to remember and suitable for brioche newbies too!

I used a speckled yarn, made by Hedgehogfibres as main color and a semisolid yarn by Malabrigo as contrasting color. This pattern is fully reversible which makes it even more fun… I am more than happy how it worked out!

The hat has a brim, is very stretchy, slouchy and well-fitting at the same time. It’s important to note that there is no 4-stitch-decrease to be knit. You can do it, knitters! The hat can be knit in multiple sizes (S, M and L)
