It's the subtle details that matter with the Annecy Beret. A knitted hem is used to create a sleek and firm brim, while a simple diagonal lace pattern imparts loads of cushy texture in a chic spiraling style. Use Knit Picks Gloss HW yarn to give the beret warmth and body with a silken sheen. The hat comes in two sizes to fit a small adult (or teenage) head and a larger adult head. The sample shown is knit in the large size.

I'm a Long Island dweller who loves to design knitwear (and even a smidge of crochet!). My designs can be found here on Craftsy and on my website, www.makewisedesigns.com!
What inspires me? rich colors; clean, strong lines; modern interpretations of traditional motifs; and texture in all of its forms.
