Beret is knit in the round. Slightly felting the beret will result in asuper soft, very authentic and chic-looking version.
Yarn: 1 skein of Morehouse Merino 2-ply
Needles: double-pointed #3 or #4 (or you can use circular needles for the main part of the beret and switch as you decrease)
Our variegated Beret is shown here in fuchsia.
