I've recently been working on redoing the photography of some of the older patterns and the Blackfriars Beret is one of those lucky ones to get an update.
The stitch pattern of this beret was inspired by some of the remaining original medieval door and window arches of Newcastle's Blackfriars cloister – hence the name of course.
Knit in a lightweight alpaca, this little beret is perfect for those interim seasons, when the spring’s just behind the corner yet it’s still too chilly to flaunt your sun dresses. Finer DK yarns would suit this project best.
All over cable pattern grows naturally from the brim into the hat’s body and further into the crown, with shaping integreated into the pattern. The cable pattern is both charted and written out as a line by line instructions.
