This beret is the perfect match for the gloves of the same name!
A symphony of lace medallions and cables that is at once elegant and classic.
Knit in the round from the band to the crown, the pattern offers three band sizes for a custom fit and the choice of two styles, the more compact traditional version or the slightly more voluminous slouchy style. Pure wool or yarn with a generous wool content is recommended. Solid colours or tonal yarns will work best to highlight the intricate stitch work.
The pattern is fully charted with directions for following the charts, it is not written out.
This listing is for the knitting pattern to make a hand knit beret to fit ladies or teen girls.

I do my best to accurately and describe the items I have for sale.
The photographs are true to the best of digital photography’s ability! Colours are true to my eye and on my computer screen, but we all know that each monitor’s representation can vary.
In the case of pottery, there are many complexities in colour and texture that quite simply, are best appreciated in person. Each one is a unique piece of art!
Details of each item including dimensions, weight, composition, etc. accompany each listing.
Pieces of pottery and hand made textiles come with a hand written card with relevant details about the piece including composition, care, catalogue number ( if applicable), and a personal message.
* A note about pottery and ceramics. It is the nature of clay that it is breakable! Please handle your pieces with care to avoid chipping or breakage. No guarantees can be given in terms of longevity. For best results, hand wash pieces with mild dish detergent and hand dry. Although they are dishwasher safe, it is not reccommended. Likewise, use in a microwave oven is not advisable.
Some crazing of the glaze is normal and to be expected. This will not affect the usefulness of your pottery.
All items come from a very clean and tidy environment that is both smoke and pet free. However, do keep in mind that in the Heathcote Road studio you may find the following animal and plant fibres: sheeps’s wool, llama, alpaca, mohair (goat), angora (rabbit), bison, camel, musk ox (quiviut), possum, cotton, linen, silk, nettle, hemp!
