Shetland Trader Breiwick Beret PDF
Inspired by beachcombing walks in Shetland, the Shetland Trader Breiwick Beret is a highly textured hat that uses a slip stitch pattern to create a cable-like lattice evocative of fishing nets. Make this in a worsted weight yarn for a thicker, sturdier beret or in a DK weight for a more peerie (small) beret. Slip stitch pattern is written only.
