Cross needles and conquer! This beret is made with the Frullesk technique and therefore fully reversible: 1 x knitting = 2 berets, since every side has unique features.
8 panels & 2 gauges
Duel is knitted in the round and consists of 8 panels. These panels are separated by a separator stitch. 4 panels have diagonals stripes to the right, the other 4 have diagonal stripes to the left. The diagonals come together at the separator stitches resulting in a star pattern.
For this pattern you can choose between two gauges. You decide which suits you the best according to your test swatch.
During blocking you can emphasize the octagon shape by putting the beret on a mould in an octagon shape. You create a round mould if you want to smoothen the corners.
The beret is for heads with circumference of 54 to 60 cm (21.5 to 24 inch). The final size can be adjusted by lacing up elastic through the casing of the band.
