How to make… a cherry berry beret

Here are the instructions to make my Cherry Berry Beret.

Side of the snuggly snood and beret

You will need:
Pair of size 5 1/2 mm needles
Pair of size 10 mm needles
Approx 100g* chunky yarn (I used Colinette point 5 in cherry)
Needle

* I had some wool left over from knitting my snood, so used that and then started another ball of wool, but ended up with a similar amount left over.

The band of the hat is approx 26 inches and fits my shop-size large head, however you might want to knit the first few rows to check the size/tension (I used whatever needles I had lying around)

Cast on 60 stitches using 5 1/2 mm needles.
Rows 1-5  *Knit 1 purl 1* repeat to end of row
Change to 10mm needles
Row 6-13  Starting with a knit row, stocking stitch (1 row knit, 1 row purl)
Row 14 *Knit 8, knit 2 together* repeat to end of row (54 stitches remaining)
Row 15 Purl
Row 16 *Knit 7, knit 2 together* repeat to end of row (48 stitches remaining)
