Inspired by a beret her goddaughter wears, Daphne has written this simple beret pattern.
Knitted in a West Yorkshire Spinners illustrious double knit it produces a very light warm beret. Firstly Daphne shows how when knitting in the round, stitch markers are essential. Secondly she demonstrates how to use the stitch markers correctly.
Using a set of 5 or 6 double ended needles and knitting in the round saves on sewing up a seam. Moreover Daphne shows us how to bring the coloured threads up your work to save sewing in the ends.
A swirly pattern on the top of the beret is created by using a decrease stitch. Giving the quirky hand knitted design that makes this beret personal to the wearer.
