Named after the capital city where it is now commonly associated, the Paris Beret is a style of headgear worn by aristocrats (see painting below) and artists across Europe. Paris can be worn in many different ways or pushed to one side as it’s customarily done and is used by men and women today and throughout modern history. Beginning as well as advanced knitters can knit this hat in the round mindlessly for one’s self or a trendy gift for someone you love.
