Alright, well this isn’t a beret but everyone I know calls it the raspberry so the name seemed fitting. Anywho, this was an experiment with a new kitting stitch called a fir cone. I was’nt sure how long or wide or thick or fluffy to make it, but after a few hours in a big comfy chair in a local coffe shop I was finished with a giant section of fabric with that pattern. Later I found my friend shelby(the hat was for her) and found out her head size so I could reshape the fabric in a tam kind of way. After it was all together I added a strip of knit cotton for the headband et voila! This hat is sooo comfy and warm, even if you have ridiculously short hair like me, but made for those with long hair and who love tams.
