Lisa Myers of Fairmount Fibers demonstrates this jaunty lace beret in Episode 113 of Knitting Daily TV. A dimensional 5-point leaf pattern pops out on a reverse stockinette ground creating an eye-catching motif. Sized to fit a woman’s medium (large) head and knit from the center out, it is easily customizable to achieve a perfect fit.

Also available at the Fairmount Fibers site and Interweave for free.
