Classic and perfectly on-trend our stylish Cepes Beret makes the most of simple texture and clean finishes. You begin construction by making a neat folded hem and then knit from the bottom up in a deeply textured banded rib pattern, which uses half twisted rib to crisply emphasise the pattern. The crown shaping is cleverly hidden between the ribbed bands, with paired decreases so that the knit and purl stitch columns are perfectly offset around.
The Cepes Beret is part of the Knitworthy 6 collection.
Knitworthy 6 is a compendium of half a dozen beautiful accessory patterns perfect for gift knitting.
Get creative with your stash and make this beret using either a single strand of worsted or aran weight yarn; or create a beautiful soft halo with DK held together with laceweight mohair. The pattern comes in a wide range of sizes, so you can gift it to anyone on your list, and includes directions for an optional I-cord stalk for the classic French finish.
There is something eternally familiar and often magical, about catching sight of a mushroom cap strewn on the forest floor. Knitworthy 6 has been about returning our attention to the natural world and admiring the connections that are so vital within it. Boletus edulis, commonly known as cep, cepe, cèpe or porcini, is one of many mushrooms that grows in woodland and forms a complex, mutually beneficial relationship with the trees. Several varieties are found in Scotland and it's easy to see how Ysolda was caught by their resemblance to a beret when hiking in the woods. This beret pays homage to the art of slowing down and noticing the little things, no less important for their size, to the system all around.
