This stylish beret is knitted in the round using stranded knitting techniques, never using more than two colours on any one round. It is a great introduction to stranded knitting for beginners.

The beret uses my Fenella yarn, a 100% british wool in a vintage 3 ply weight. It uses 5 colours requiring 1 skein of each of:

Roman Plaster

Set of 2.5mm (US 2) double pointed needles
