I had a few balls of yarn left over after making the Finchley Road Shawl and decided a warm, slouchy hat would be the perfect accompaniment. The result is a warm, stylish, and slightly retro beret that won't take long to make. The hat is knit in the round from the bottom up and takes 2 balls of Sheffield. The pattern is both written and charted, and of course I'm always available for support if you have questions about it. GAUGE Gauge: 26 sts x 28 rows = 4" (10 cm) on larger needles.
