The Bisbis beret is worked from top towards the bottom. The beret is started with an i-cord for the “stem” and then joined in the round and increased to the maximum width. Then the hat is decreased to fit, and ended with an i-cord bind off. The hat is easiest to knit using the Magic Loop Method, but you can also work it on DPNs and change to circular needles when it is wide enough.

Choose from two different yarn weight options: the fingering weight option will give you a smaller, more tightly fitting beret, whereas the sport weight option will be more roomy and drapey.
