beret - side-back

This lightweight, easy to knit hat is an accessory you need in lots of colours! Worked in fingering weight yarn, it is perfect for those skeins of sock yarn or laceweight that are just too beautiful to hide. A bit of slouch makes for a flattering fit.

Work this up in a single yarn, or mix it up with one for the ribbing and a complementary yarn for the rest of the hat – I used Koigu KPPPM for the ribbing and a doubled laceweight yarn for the rest.

SIZES
To Fit: Baby (Child’s S, Child’s M){Child’s L / Women’s S, Women’s M, Women’s L}
Brim Circumference: 16 (17, 18){19, 20, 21} inches / 40.5 43, 4648, 51, 53] cm

Fingering weight yarn – approximately 180-215 yards / 165-195 m per 1.75 oz / 50g skein

If using 2 different yarns, you’ll need 15% of the total yardage for the ribbing, and then 85% of the total yardage for the body of the hat.

    …the kind you find in a secondhand store! I will be knitting this for the name alone. Thanks for the little drop of rasberry love on this dreary, rainy day!
