Also included with the Wee Liesl pattern.

Turn wee Liesl into a darling old-fashioned outfit with this little beret worked from the top down in the same feather and fan pattern as the cardigan. Beginning with an I-cord is an easy way to start from the centre out and creates a traditional stalk. Only one size is given due to the large repeat of the stitch pattern but could be adjusted by adjusting gauge or working a few more vertical repeats and binding off loosely.

Fingering / 4ply weight yarn with good elasticity, wool or wool blends are ideal.
