Fool’s Gold Beret

Price: $5.00 

The beaded brim of this classic beret turns it into an elegant winter accessory. Worked in the round in a worsted weight yarn, it is a quick knit. The beads are pre-strung onto the yarn before knitting and slipped into place on the stitches while knitting. The technique is usually referred to as bead knitting.
