Pretty, easy to work, slouchy beret worked seamlessly with a Japanese leaf-inspired lace pattern that flows along the front & back of hat.

Pattern Notes
Beret is worked seamlessly, from the bottom up. After the ribbed brim, increases are worked, and the body is accented with an asymmetrical waving leaf pattern on both sides of hat. The decreases on the top of the beret are incorporated into the pattern and a pretty openwork pattern is added to echo similar leaf shapes.
