A ruffled flower completes this lacy beret. It's knit from the bottom up in the round on circular needles and DPNs. The lace is made up of alternating diamond-like lace panels and mock mini cables for a pretty and highly textured effect.
The yarn is a very soft and supple blend of cotton and modal, available in many vibrant colors.
This is a fairly slouchy beret due to the softness of the yarn and the weight from the cotton. Knitting this in a wool blend will create a different effect.
