Remember this periwinkle beret I knit for my grandma?
Now you can make your own!
About the beret This quintessential beret embodies all the classic features - ribbed brim, a body of medium fullness, subtle crown decreases, and a small nub at the top. Its finished size is 11" (28 cm) in diameter, laid flat. This will fit most adults.
About the pattern This one is as easy as they come! Techniques used: tubular cast-on (explicit directions included), knitting in the round, increases and decreases.
I think the Periwinkle Beret would be a great project for the first 'knitting in the round' experience. Simple construction is only enhanced by a light price tag - one skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport is all you need!
