Here is my first beret, the Robin Beret. I never saw myself as a beret-wearer but I think I’m now a convert. I bought the pattern for this beret today and I’m also thinking about this one and this one. I used about half a skein of Classic Elite Alpaca Sox on size 2 needles. I used magic loop rather than seaming and I can’t think of any reason why that wouldn’t be a good idea.
