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 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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knitting in the round picking up stitches to make the brim basic increasing and decreasing GAUGE 9 stitches and 12 rows = 4 inches in stockinette SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS averge adult

Supplies Needed

  • Size US 13 circular needles and/or dpns
  • size 8 straight needles for brim
  • 100 yards super bulky yarn
