This stitch patter for the gorgeous Elderwood Breeze Beret pattern reminds me of taking a stroll in the woods near my home. The trees are ancient and seem to interweave with each other in an interesting way. Sometimes you can see through them, and sometimes they are too densely packed together.
The hat is a tam style with a ribbed section then increased for the main body before decreases at the crown. The sections of stocking stitch become narrower as the hat gets smaller which is representative of the shape of the trees.
It is knitted in the round and comes in three sizes for the brim. It has written and charted instructions.
The hat was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It was recently voted Runner Up in a Stylecraft/Knit Now magazine design competition.
The cowl was knitted in Stylecraft Bellissima (100% acrylic) in colourway Rio Red 3932. It comes in small, medium and large width.
The matching cowl can be found here – Elderwood Breeze Cowl
Thank you to my tech editor – Tabitha Thomas Studios and my test knitters.
The Elderwood Walk Beret pattern is knitted with dk weight yarn. You could substitute any soft dk weight yarn. I I used 4mm needles but if you wanted a drapier cowl, you could go up to a larger needle size. You might use more yarn, so allow for that when choosing your colours.add to cart show cart

As always, when I’m knitting for the knitworthy members of my family or dear friends, I consider how they’re going to wear it, wash it, the colours they love and what styles they wear. In this case, it’s for me and I saw this yarn and felt it was perfect for the hat and cowl for the Elderwood design, it’s machine wash, soft and a stunning colour.
