Join this class to make a new beret design by Edel. Taking its inspiration from the irish 'tam', the shape is enjoying a revival with the current wave of movies filming in the West of Ireland and the islands. Suitable for all knitting levels, the pattern has shaping and cabling. Worked in an aran weight wool and two needle sizes (US 7 and 9) or European 4mm and 5mm or similar. The pattern is not worked in the round but you may use straight or circular needles. Bring 100g (200 yards) of wool yarn or choose one at the class.
