Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should be able to: knit, purl, decrease and do yarn overs.

Pattern Description:

This hat has been inspired by the lovely berets of the late 30s and early 40s. Work it in a classic beret size or a bit bigger for a slouchier more modern hat. It's knit with one strand each of fingering wool and kid mohair to give it a nice vintage feel and halo while keeping your head warm. The chevron lace adds even more classic charm and interest.

So get yourself a ball of mohair and use up some of your fingering yarn. The simple lace pattern is easy to memorize and your new hat will be finished in no time! So fast, you might perhaps want to knit a second one as a gift for a dear friend.
