Who can resist a basic beret? Ethel is a classic, simple knit beret with a stranded colorwork band. It’s knit from the ribbed band to the crown and topped with a fluffy pompom. The knitting needle motifs that decorate the hat leave no doubt that it was made by a proud crafter, and the pompom is the perfect finishing touch.
