Brambles Beret

Join Fran for three 2 hour sessions where she’ll help you knit Amanda Muscha’s “Brambles Beret.” This beautiful hat is not as complicated as it looks, but it’s a great stepping stone for those who want to improve their knitting skills. You can grab the Brambles pattern right HERE or copy and paste the link from the “Stuff You Need” section into your browser.

In this class you’ll learn:

  • Knitting in the Round on DPNs
