Two versions of a beret using a brushed alpaca yarn. Both berets are worked in the round, one is stockinette stitch topped with an I-cord knob. The other one is worked in a lace pattern. Experience with working in the round, making an I-cord or following a simple 4 row repeat lace pattern is helpful. Good for the advanced beginner to intermediate knitter. They can be worn in the traditional way or pulled back for a more trendy look.
Both hats can be made out of approximately 330 yards of yarn (3 skeins of the Baby Alpaca Brush) and the body of the hat is worked on size 9 needles.
The yarn used in the pattern is Plymouth Baby Alpaca Brush and has a nice soft feel, but another yarn calling for a size 9 needle with gauge of 14 stitches = 4" could be substituted. Just a little thicker than a worsted weight yarn. You can convo me if you need information on purchasing the yarn.
The pattern includes color photos of the finished projects, easy to follow directions, a list of abbreviations and a stitch glossary explaining the techniques used in the projects.
