A lightweight lace beret will keep you warm and stylish all winter. This hat starts with a circular cast-on at the top (this is a great technique for hats, shawls, or anything else that begins in the center of a circle); it ends with a tubular bind-off. The tubular bind-off is one of my favorite techniques—few techniques give me more satisfaction than one that’s been perfectly executed. It’s a bit time-consuming, but the clean look makes it worth the effort.
