Estonian lace and simple 5-st nupps grow and shrink across this slouchy beret. For an extra challenge, make your nupps larger by making them out of 7 sts instead of 5, or use beads for a bit a shine.

Pattern includes both charted and fully written instructions.

Shown in Manos del Uruguay Serena (170yd/155m per 50g skein, 60% Baby Alpaca, 40% Pima Cotton) in color 6977 (Willow), 1 skein

Yarn note: While the sample yarn is listed as a sport/DK weight, it is actually somewhat lighter and has a longer yardage than stated on the label. The sample used less than 1 skein of Serena for the large size, but please refer to recommended yardage if using a different yarn.
