The all over floral motif of this colorwork beret was inspired by a double-knit wall hanging my husband brought back for me from Norway.

Selbu Modern was one of my very first published designs—before Kelbourne Woolens was even established! I love that over 8 years later, people are using this little hat to discover a love of stranded color work and knitting from charts.
