This pattern knits a wonderfully thick and warm slouch beret type hat.. Instructions come complete with description of how to knit the beret point ! In addition, the pattern includes instructions on how to knit a matching scarf.
This hat has been created in a regular size as well as a larger size, in order to accommodate someone with long or otherwise voluminous hair who wishes to place it inside the hat. In both hats, the band stretches well, but still grips.
Things to know about this pattern:
