I designed this beret for one of my running friends, Elaine; she had requested that I make her a red beret. This was at the same time that we were away for a double parkrun over the New Year. We weren’t in Scotland, but someone that she knew seemed to think we were. From then on this particular trip become affectionately known as ‘Elaine’s Scottish Run’.

The hat is a tam style with a providional cast on and double brim ribbed section. The stitch count is then increased for the main body before swirling decreases at the crown.

The samples were knitted in Stylecraft Special DK (100% acrylic) in colourway Burgundy 1035 and Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK (75% Merino, 20% silk, 5% cashmere). Or choose your own favourite DK weight yarn. The pattern comes in small, medium and large.

Produced with huge thanks to my tech editor - Tabitha Thomas Studios and my wonderful test knitters.
