Lower temperatures are the perfect excuse to pull out the knitting needles. This beret is sure to warm you through autumn. The yarn is a heavy-worsted acrylic, so the beret knits up quickly. I made mine in an afternoon! Some basic knitting skills are needed, but trust me, if you can knit a scarf, you can knit a beret.
