Construction Notes: The hat can change from a beret to a slouch just by using a different blocking method; it can also be left unblocked to fit as a standard cap. The ribbing of the mitts can be worked longer for extra coverage; the mitts are worked from the fingers down to the wrists allowing for this simple modification.
