I couldn’t fit all of my ideas into one beret, so I had to make another version that turned into this pattern – the Twirling Twill Beret. I wanted an overall subtle texture so I went with a simple slip stitch to create the twill texture on top and incorporated a different take on the twisted rib pattern at the bottom to shape the hat. The result feels very classic in a heather or solid yarn.
