Pinecone Beret Pattern
designed by Nancy Bush 

The Pinecone Beret is a two-end or twined knitted hat, made from Toots LeBlanc's Jacob/Alpaca DK weight blend. It is styled after a classic French beret, but all the stitches are made with two ends of yarn which are twined.

The beret is not fulled, but the technique gives the fabric a thick hand. The decoration on the top is made of knit and purled stitches known as krok or hook stitches.

This pattern would be a good one for learning or practicing this interesting Swedish technique. Instructions for working the two-end technique are included.

Pattern Only. $7.00
