Classic Red Wool Beret
This is a simple, slouchy beret, knit out of a chunky wool blend yarn in a gorgeous clear bright red that will liven up your winter grays and blacks. A true classic, this beret is a quintessential, cosmopolitan, and timeless wardrobe essential. The knit fabric is thick and warm. This hat is sized slightly on the medium-large side, with firm but not-too-tight ribbing and a broader dome. I'd call it a large-ish medium, but do check the measurements below with a hat you own. Unblocked for casual slouch. Dimensions: Ribbed band: 18" (unstretched) to 25" Brim to center top: 10.5" Fiber content: 20% wool 80% acrylic Color: Red, the real deal ... a bright clear cool red Technically this yarn is machine washable and dryable, but I strongly suggest hand washing all hand-knits, regardless of fiber content, to maintain their best appearance. Smoke-free house full of fabric and yarn; resident calico cat. Cheers! Jan
