Ishbel Beret PDF
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
My friend Rebecca had yarn leftover from her Ishbel and wanted a beret pattern that would go with the scarf. So this one’s for you Rebecca. A slouchy beret featuring the same stitch patterns as the Ishbel pattern with decreases worked into the lace pattern on the crown. A foldover hem creates a neat band that gives a stable edge to the lightweight fabric.
