To bead, or not to bead? That is the question with this versatile, slouchy beret! Including options for both versions, this pattern appeals to the modern chic and glamorous alike. Without beads, the deep texture of the diagonal patterning comes to life, mimicking small cables (but don’t worry, it’s just knit and purl)! Those who wish to add beads may do so as they go through the use of a small crochet hook, allowing you to be as impulsive as you desire regarding their placement. Mix up the bead placement to create something uniquely yours, or showcase a beautiful rustic yarn on the bead-free variation!

Instructions provided for make one and make one purlwise stitches as well as how to add beads.
