This striking retro beret is knitted using intarsia and colourwork techniques. The sideways construction means that the colourwork is not as complicated as it may first appear, because the Hat is created by knitting a series of panels.
Pattern instructions include 5 sizes, from 6 months through to large adult.
Skills required: Knit & purl sts, short rows (w&t), provisional cast-on, kitchener stitch, intarsia
Gauge: 22 sts x 28 rows to 4in/10cm on 3.75mm needles over St.St.
Note: Fit is determined by row gauge – if your gauge differs, simply work more or fewer panels to achieve the desired size.
