This is a slouchy beret, knitted in the round and worked in one piece from the top down. After casting on your stitches, a small I-cord is knitted before commencing onto the crown shaping of the beret. Beads are optional, but they do add a beautiful touch to this beret.

Instructions for this beret are provided in both written and charted format.

This Forget-Me-Not Beret is based on my shawl pattern. It uses the same yarn and they share a common pattern repeat.

Background info for the design:
My grandfather passed away in 2009 after suffering from dementia and memory problems for several years. While he was still alive, I designed and produced a charity Christmas card for Alzheimer’s Scotland, which raised over £1,000 for the charity. Along with the thank you note that I received from them was a small packet of Forget-Me-Not seeds.
Since then, I have tried to grow my own Forget-Me-Nots. I wasn’t having much luck growing them until earlier this summer, when the first little blue flower appeared in my garden. This flower inspired me to create my first pattern, my Forget-Me-Not Shawl.
