This playful beret makes the most of one precious skein of Koigu. A little touch of beading ‘gilds the lily.’ And the knitting is easy-peasy—even with the beading rows you might get one finished in an evening or two. With all that, plus a shape that’s timeless and flattering, this little beret makes the perfect gift.

If the beret’s band is too large for your head or stretches out with wear, whip-stitch the rolled band to the inside, leaving a small opening to insert a narrow piece of soft elastic or a fine ribbon.
