Knitting with super bulky yarn is fast. It also can get boring fast, as it rarely lends itself to more exciting stitch patterns. Here is a break from usual garter and stockinette. This design, while remaining simple even for beginners, introduces a cabled brim with a buttonhole and seven pointed star of decreases on the crown.
This sweet and sassy beret will keep you toasty in cold weather. Lusciously soft super bulky yarn and thick needles will help you make this hat in 1-2 hours flat.
