Peacock Eyes Beret is a seamless hat worked from bottom to top all in one piece. It features a collection of lace motifs resembling the eyes on a peacock’s tail.
The beret is suitable for various wool blends with good stitch definition. Solid and semi-variegated yarns are highly recommended in order to show the unique beauty of the lace motifs.
The pattern is available as a single download and also as a part of "On a Peacock's Tail" e-book.
