Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit in the round, knit in front and back of the stitch, K2tog,

Pattern Description:

I walked into a very trendy vintage shop and the owner commissioned me to knit a beret. This pattern is the result. After making the plain stockinette stitch version I wanted to get a little creative and I decided to go with a simple lace pattern. I used a brushed alpaca yarn for the originals but other yarns can be substituted.
Both berets are worked in the round, one is stockinette stitch topped with an I-cord knob. The other one is worked in a lace pattern. Experience with working in the round, making an I-cord or following a simple 4 row repeat lace pattern is helpful.
Good for the advanced beginner to intermediate knitter.
