This slouchy-styled Fair Isle beret is a sweet accessory for cool spring days. It looks great worn with both short hair or long hair and flatters most faces – the young and not so young! The beret is knitted using the Fair Isle technique in the round.
“It’s a great introduction to Fair Isle, because there are only three stitches between every colour change,” says Jane. “This means that you won’t have to do any weaving in – the yarn can simply be carried at the back of the work. It also means that you can keep track of your pattern repeat very easily.”
Jane advises that when holding the second colour in your left hand, be careful not to pull the yarn too tightly as this may cause puckering. The pretty beret is knitted in four delicate shades of a soft DK weight acrylic yarn though a wool based yarn would work equally well.
