A wonderfully soft beret decorated with small strings of pretty beads travelling towards the crown. Knit in the round from the brim up, this gentle pattern is relaxing to knit.

Vernalis is the perfect Hat for that special skein of yarn - possum or angora blends with a lovely halo lend themselves well to this design.
