Have you seen this beret?

Looks like a mug shot, no?

Yup. Made a grey one.

Same as the black one, went up a needle size so it's a bit slouchier. Cleckheaton country 12 ply, my Denise Interchangeable needles size 9 for the ribbing, size 10 for the stockinette and magic loop to finish.

Look, I knit a beret

Free pattern available from Knit and Tonic. It's called Le slouch, although mine didn't slouch very much. I'm not going to gauge swatch for a beret; I'm rebellious that way. I like it like this, and maybe I'll make a grey one and go up a needle size so it is more slouchy.
