Soft Linen inspired Meg's lace beret. Her goal with this beret was straightforward: design a spring hat with an easy-to-memorize lace stitch and a detailed panel. The six-stitch lace repeat offers the kind of melodic redundancy we knitters often enjoy. The lace panel at the beginning of the round adds interest, not only to the finished beret itself, but also to the knitting process.
The finished beret blocks beautifully, opening the lace stitches and adding enough slouch to keep you cool during warm sunny days. But just in case the clouds roll in, the wool and alpaca will dutifully keep you warm.
