The swirl shape was inspired by a pattern of an ancient Chinese eaves tile. I tried to mimic the look of it, and it turns out a good look as a beret.
I knitted my first one using Lana Grossa Bingo and tested knitting with Lana Grossa Alta Moda Alpaka. The color I chose was red since this beret was designed during Chinese new year and red color represents good fortune to Chinese people!
This beret was worked in round and was designed with a super stretch brim to fit wider range of head circumferences. Written instructions and chart are included.
Size Finished size after blocking: total diameter around 26 cm(10.5”) One size, will fit head circumference 54-56 cm
