This is an easy, stylish summer beret which knits up quickly.

Made from dk or light worsted cotton or linen yarn, its slouchy, casual shape creates a hat perfect for those lazy, hazy warm summer days.

The brim is in a twisted double rib to add texture and depth, and the symmetrical rows of eyelets help keep things cool when the temperature rises.

A great portable project to pop in your handbag, this little hat takes just one skein of yarn.

The pattern is three pages long, is written with both British and US terminology, and contains hints and tips to help you along the way.
