I recently started my first hat knitting in the round. It took me a while to get the hang of round needles, but now that I have I am hooked!
I chose Paton’s Shetland Chunky yarn because it was an affordable yarn for my first hat trial. The dark green is a nice, rich, fall colour. I have always wanted a dark green slouchy hat, but have never seen one in stores.
I wanted to try an easy hat pattern and found a great simple beret pattern on Ravelry. This pattern is pretty basic and fast! I didn’t have the same size needles as the pattern uses, so my beret has a tighter knit than shown.
Size 8 US (5mm) 16″ circular needles. If you want a chunkier knit use the needles recommended in the patter!
