This easy lace beret knits up quickly in fingering weight yarn.
The name is inspired by the star/flower motif in the back. Elen (pronounced with the accent on the second syllable), means Star in Quenya, Tolkien’s High Elvish language.
“Elen síla lúmenn’ omentielvo.” A star shines on the hour of our meeting. -J.R.R.Tolkien
