I designed this beret for one of my running friends, Elaine; she had requested that I make her a red beret. This was at the same time that we were away for a double parkrun over the New Year. We weren’t in Scotland, but someone that she knew seemed to think we were. From then on this particular trip become affectionately known as ‘Elaine’s Scottish Run’.
The hat is a tam style with a providional cast on and double brim ribbed section. The stitch count is then increased for the main body before swirling decreases at the crown.
The samples were knitted in Stylecraft Special DK (100% acrylic) in colourway Burgundy 1035 and Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK (75% Merino, 20% silk, 5% cashmere). Or choose your own favourite DK weight yarn. The pattern comes in small, medium and large.
Produced with huge thanks to my tech editor – Tabitha Thomas Studios and my wonderful 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 fabric, you could go up to a larger needle size. You might use more yarn, so allow for that when choosing your colours.buy nowadd to 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.
