Brampton is a slouchy beret featuring a crossed cable pattern that grows smaller towards the top, resulting in a flower shape around the center of the hat. The beret is knit from the bottom up on a circular needle, with the shaping incorporated in the cable pattern. Knit in a chunky yarn, Brampton knits up quickly and if a pure wool yarn is used, this hat will surely keep your head warm! The stretchy ribbed brim ensures a perfect fit for most women. The pattern comes in written instructions. SIZE: One size to fit 20-24 inch head.
FINISHED MEASUREMENTS The ribbed brim measures 20 inches, but can easily stretch up to 24 inches and will fit most women.
