When yarn gives you leftovers, make a beret!
Dive deep through the currents with this warm weather upcycled hat design. The bamboo blend helps regulate your temperature, while the lace provides fresh air for your little grey cells beneath. It’s a non-pi nonagon! The 9 equal sections become accentuation points at the outer limits of the beret giving it a 3D effect. This spin on the old standard round beret adds styling, structure, and visual interest.
The tech edited and test knit pattern is written and charted and includes a blocking schematic.
