While floral motifs abound in knitwear, many feature variations on regularly-shaped six or eight petal flowers. The Septafleur Beret is fresh interpretation of this classic design, featuring a rare seven petal design.

The beret is worked from the top down, starting with a circular cast on technique. The floral motif at the crown dissolves into seed stitch as each of the seven petals tapers to a point.

This pattern includes both written instructions and charts.
