This retro beret pattern is inspired by the mod style of the 1960s. The reverse woven stitch band provides a perfect place to showcase a one-of-a-kind button. A shell-like whorl is created by ridges that spiral inward from the band to the crown. The ceramic button featured here was hand-made by Laura Sheppard.
