The Bryanston Beret pattern is two patterns in one – The original 2 colour version shown and a new ‘inside out’ striped version (pictured).
This second version is literally knitted inside out so the lovely texture pattern emerges on the ‘wrong side’ from the ribbing upwards.and you just flip the hat the right way once you’re finished.
The stitch pattern creates a bouncy fabric which allows you to block it as a slouchy beanie or a beret/tam shape depending on which you prefer.
Sherbourne Hat and Cowl
Both hat and cowl use picot edged pleats to create warm and structure without being bulky.

Mimizan uses a two coloured textured stitch pattern to create a fun hat sized from newborn through to adult male. It uses aran weight yarn so is a speedy and warm knit. The pattern also provides actual yardages of each colour needed so you can see if you have sufficient partial skeins to make a hat, which is great for the smaller sizes which just use a little yarn.

Squishy Sock Yarn Hat
This hat draws on a lot of the design features of the shawl – eyelets and great sock yarns.
I just love the colours available in sock yarns and think this hat is just the thing to brighten us up in cold weather, when our socks are hidden away in boots. The way it concertinas makes it warmer than you’d think for 4 plus. There are two different cast on for a curled edge or a picot edge.
