This 8ply Beret style Beanie is worked in an easy block stitch and can be worn several ways. Wear it as a Beret, a slouchy Beanie or turn up the brim to create a firmer fit Beanie. It is worked in the round, so no sewing up required.
If you like this style of beanie but prefer to work in rows, on a pair of needles, and have a seam, please see my Audrey pattern.
