Phryne Beret Knitting Pattern
This design draws its inspiration from a structured woven hat sported by a certain lady detective during one of her nocturnal investigations. The designer’s challenge was to create a hat that would hold its shape despite being made from a very soft fiber with a beautiful sheen. Pairing this soft merino with slip-stitch texture provides the right amount of structural integrity while the stitch pattern creates a naturally reversible beret.

Inspired by a detective's woven hat, this beret is a perfect accessory for a vintage-inspired outfit. The designer created this pattern to be worked in slip-stitch to give the soft yarn structural instegrity, giving the beret a woven appearance.
