NOTES

The Beret is worked in the round using the amigurumi method from the crown to the brim. Work in a continuous spiral without closing off each round with a slip stitch. You may find it helpful to place a marker in the first st of each round and move it up as you work.

In Rounds 3-14 and Rounds 22-26, the htr stitches are worked into the spaces between the stitches, rather than into the stitches themselves.

The Button Overlap is worked as a separate piece and sewn on afterwards.

TO MAKE UP

Position Button Overlap so that the curve is to the left and one flat edge is in line with the edge of the Beret.

Carefully sew the ends of the Rows to the hat to give the appearance of an overlap. Using the same tail, sew the button to the centre of the overlap to secure.
