This is a beret that I made about a couple months ago and I want to share it with you all. It is very easy to make. There are only a few steps like when you get into doing the lace pattern that you should pay a lot of attention to in order to keep your pattern consistent. So, just like in anything thing else you knit you want to pay attention. Overall it a really pretty hat and fun to mix and match with different colors, so play around with it and have fun. :) *<Knit-Mania>*
