Beret: The circumference of the ribbing is 50 cm / 20 inches for both models.

The size is adult medium. The stranded fabric beeing less elastic than the ribbling, all models fit a head circumference of 54-56 cm (21-22 inches).

Yarn: You can use fingering yarn left overs in suitable colours. For each flower row, you need appr. 8 g (28 m / 31 yd) of each colour for the beret In the original I used Rauma Finullgarn in the following colours:

Blue 483
White 401

The beret has a cabled ribbing, with a contrast coloured edge.

The flower charts can be mixed and matched as you wish. There are four flower charts, sunflower, poppies, lavender and almond flower, and similar decreasing charts.
