The raised floral design in this lightweight beret is reminiscent of the embossed Italian waffle cookies of the same name. Working cables in the round from the top down is a great technique, since you can always see the “right side” as you work the design. Although this pattern requires more focus and a few more stitches due to the lace weight yarn, the stunning results are worth your time.
