Annecy Beret


This pattern is also featured on Knit Picks’ website as part of the Independent Designer Program here!

It’s the subtle details that matter with the Annecy Beret. A knitted hem is used to create a sleek and firm brim, while a simple diagonal lace pattern imparts loads of cushy texture in a chic, spiraling style. Use an Aran-weight yarn, like the Knit Picks City Tweed Aran/HW shown here, to give the beret softness and warmth with a classic tweed fabric.

The hat comes in two sizes and should be worn with at least 1-2” [2.5-5 cm] of negative ease in the brim. The sample shown is knit in the larger size.
