This pattern was first published in Knit Now magazine issue 2, but has now been updated to include more experimentation with the corsage.

The designs in the photo show shades 13 and 42. You will need 3 balls for the beret and one extra to make the flower corsage. Alternatively, you can experiment with different yarns for the flower - I tried an aran weight cotton from my stash (I think it was Wendy Capri, but there was no ballband.)
