Breiwick Beret

Breiwick has been test knit (thanks Christy) and is ready to go!

Inspired by beachcombing walks in Shetland this highly textured beret uses a slip stitch pattern to create a cable-like lattice evocative of fishing nets. Make this in a worsted weight yarn for a thicker, sturdier beret or in a DK weight for a more peerie (small) beret.
Finished Size
Diameter across top of beret is 10.5 inches in Worsted weight and 10 inches in DK weight.
Approx 190 yrds worsted weight yarn or 210 yrds of DK weight yarn. Shown in Dream In Colour, Classy and Rowan Pure Wool DK.
US#4/3.5mm 16-inch Circular Needle (for both berets)
US#8/5mm 16-inch Circular Needle (for worsted weight beret)
US#7/4.5mm 16 inch Circular Needle (for DK weight beret)
Set of US#8/5mm DPN’S (for worsted weight beret)
Set of US#7/4.5mm DPN’S (for DK weight beret)
Crochet hook (for catching slipped sts)
19 sts and 28 rows=4 inches in stockinette st on US#8/5mm in worsted weight.
21 sts and 28 rows=4 inches in stockinette st on US#7/4.5mm in DK weight.
Skill Level
Intermediate. The slip stitch patterns requires dropping and catching stitches without using a cable needle.
