Lakeway Beret is knit from the brim to the i-cord tippy top, with fair isle patterning along the way. The crown has beautiful patterning within wedge-shaped sections achieved by Centered Double Decreases. The flat aspect of the hat is produced by washing and blocking on a plate or flat disc of cardboard cut to size.

Great for using up your stash!
