The Marigold Beret features a textured botanical lace with a beautiful floral shape at the crown that reminds me of a sun-loving marigold. For a number of years my family moved frequently when I was growing up, and my mother would always plant marigolds along the front walkway of our new house so marigolds are a friendly and familiar reminder of home.

NOTES
• This lace beret is worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom-up.
• This pattern includes full written and charted instructions.
• Switch to double-pointed needles when there are too few stitches to fit comfortably around circular needle.
• Lace is steam-blocked over a dinner plate to permanently open the lace and set the acrylic yarn into shape. Do not steam the ribbing.
• The stitch marker is moved one stitch position to the left at Round 9 on every repeat worked. Rounds 10-12 are worked as usual with the marker in its new position.
