Making use of twisted stitches that slip around the entire Hat, this beret is given great drape thanks to the silk content of the yarn. Worked from the brim up, in the round, this Hat is a little bit of luxury and comfort both in the knitting and the wearing. Available as a single pattern or as part of the Classic Woolly Toppers collection.


Hat Description

Annular is a slouchy beret. Worked seamless from the bottom up, it starts with a twisted rib brim then increases outwards to create a beret shape. It features a simple geometric pattern, with simple pops of texture staggered evenly through the body. The crown is worked in reverse stocking stitch and decreases in a circular formation.
