Berets make a nice change from beanies and give a different look. They can also use up small quantities of yarn. Cabling, Fair Isle and then yarn weight will all change the look of the beret. Sheila’s beret has a little top knot and a bow to decorate it. Her midnight blue homespun wool looks really lovely and her beret can be used with jeans or with a nice navy outfit.
There are some good beret patterns on AllFreeKnitting.
