Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • picking up stitches to make the brim
  • basic increasing and decreasing

Pattern Description:

This is two patterns in one! Knit a fast and simple beret or continue on to make a newsboy. I love newsboy caps, but I can never seem to find a pattern that uses my favorite super bulky yarn and doesn't have a bunch of crazy wrapping and turning at the brim ..so I wrote my own. This is a super quick project, knit one tonight and wear it tomorrow!

This pattern is knit with 100 yards of super bulky yarn in the round on circular or double pointed needles. I would consider this an intermediate pattern, altho none of the stitches are difficult, you just need to know knits and purls, simple increasing and decreasing.

9 stitches and 12 rows = 4 inches in stockinette

  • averge adult

Materials:

  • Size US 13 circular needles and/or dpns
