This simple, urbane beret employs a dk-weight cashmere yarn knit down to a fingering gauge for a cozy, dense fabric that’s soft on even the smoothest pate. The flattering shape looks great on men and women alike.
This beret should fit softly and comfortably with enough slouch to wear at a jaunty angle and enough depth to pull down over your ears on a chilly morning.
If the beret’s band is too large for your head or stretches out with wear, whip-stitch the rolled band to the inside, leaving a small opening to insert a narrow piece of soft elastic or a fine ribbon.
