Slouchy French Beret Pattern
I used three strands of Dk yarn held together, one being mohair to give it a touch of fuzziness and warmth. I think a 12 ply to bulky yarn could work too, as long as you get correct gauge. Just play around with your yarns, and change your hook size if needed to get your gauge right.
9mm hook (or hook size to get correct gauge)
The diameter measures approximately 5 inches after the completing the first 3 rounds.
