This super stylish slouchy beret is written for a large range of sizes from babies to adult. The stitch pattern creates a lacy effect without being difficult to master. A highly variegated yarn is the perfect choice for this pattern, as the finished product will showcase it as an extraordinary fabric.
This beret is knit in the round and no seaming is necessary. The crown decrease creates a central gathered appearance. Skills used are knitting in the round, k2tog, and YO.
