This is the perfect recipe for an all-weather beret: playful stripes, a little bit of slouch and lightweight yarn make this truly versatile.
Whether you’re using up beloved scraps of stash or breaking into a new skein of your favourite handdye, let the colours do the talking in this easy to knit beret. There’s no need to break yarn at the end of each stripe- simply carry it loosely up the inside, twisting around each other as you change colours.
