Knit a saucy red beret to pull on over your ears when those soon-to-be-winter days start to tug on your spirit. The designer worked her little hat in a tweedy red and topped it with a perky I-cord detail. She recommends wearing the beret at a slight tilt to encourage a little bounce in your step. Because this hat is a one-skein project, you can easily make a second beret in a misty gray for days when you're feeling serious.
