Pattern Description:

The subject of "Turning Points" was my original inspiration for this beret. I was reflecting on how my life is just a collection of so many turning points when the construction of this hat started to grow in my mind.

You will knit this hat from the top down. By using short rows, you will make several wedges that grow from each other and end up forming the crown. From there, you'll knit the rib band, and a nice gathered stitch detail that accents the transition between crown and rib.

This is a hat that we'll keep your head warm on the outside, and happily entertained on the inside.
