Notes

Beading could become addictive! Making this beret could also become addictive. I have a few alluring skeins of Koigu lying provocatively on my yarn shelves and a few packets of different hued glass beads. I may succumb a second time.

I made the smaller size but upgraded both knitting needle sizes quoted in pattern (US1 and US2) because my tension is often a little tight. I had read a few comments about how this beret came out a little on the small size so I chose to err on the side of caution.

NB You will need double pointed needles in the larger size to finish the top of the beret knitted in the round.
