Upcycle your yarn leftovers or mini skeins into a warm weather sun inspired beret! Sun Fire transforms the surplus Green Sheep Cotton and Bamboo fingering yarn from Solar Flare Circular Shawl into the must have fashion accessory of the season. Come and wake up the sun with flare lace and flame twisted stitches! Add optional beads for extra kisses of sunlight.

The tech edited intermediate level pattern is fully written and charted. Check out the Solar Flare Circular Shawl stitch demos on You Tube for demonstrations of the unique stitches.

Note: due to the extreme drape of the yarn 3”/ 7.5cm of negative ease is used on the head band. If substituting a different fiber yarn, select head band size based on desired negative ease for drape of fiber substituted.
