Pattern Description:

During a Christmas time family visit, my eldest sister gushed about her love for Taylor Swift. While watching an E! True Hollywood Story about Taylor Swift I felt a connection with both her music, as well as herselfone of the reasons why she is so popular. I also noticed a red beret that she was wearing, during a visit to London. I loved the hat, and I now love her music, it is my guilty pleasure. So, to honor the inspiration she has provided me with, I created a knitting pattern for the hat.

Her Beret looks very slouchy, almost over-sized, so that is how I created this pattern. I have included two sizes, and the pattern now also includes a Baby & Toddler version, made with the left-over yarn from the Adult version. If using Cascade 128, which I have specified in the instructions, there is just enough for both hats.
