I wanted a casual hat to wear since it's chilly in the morning and warm during the day. I used cotton yarn because wool would be too hot down here in the south. I loved the look of this beret when I saw the pattern online. It's from Stitch Nation by Debbie Stoller.
I knitted my hat in the round, not on circular needles. I started the ribbed part with size 5 double pointed needles, then began the diagonal stitch with size 8 double pointed needles.
I'm extremely happy with the result.
I can't believe such a simple, easy hat garners me so many compliments (from men and women of all ages) so I just had to pass it along and share the pattern.
Click here for the pattern online or here for the pdf, knit it up, wear it out and revel in the compliments you will be sure to receive.
