A simple beret with a twist, twisted stitches that is.
I used a smaller-than-usual size needle to create the cushy fabric I was looking forthis one was for my mom, and she lives in Chicago, where it gets cold. I imagine she will wear this down over her ears rather than on the back of her head or beret-style.
Any woolly, worsted yarn will work in this pattern. If you can't find Merino 5, try Berocco's Pure Merino, as the composition and construction of the yarns are very similar.
20 sts x 28 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch
220 yards of Worsted weight

I live and knit in New York City and Bath, Maine, with my husband and our three children, getting my style fix in the one and my New England (Red Sox/cranberry bog/lobster roll/chilly nights in need of a sweater) fix in t'other.
