Pattern Description:

When our winter comes, it's not usually a slow leading up. Fall is our shortest month. Sometime in October we usually get snow, which leaves us scrambling for our hats and scarves, we need them NOW! Brrr. This hat is a breeze to knit, and is sure to keep you warm when those breezes pick up into winds. Winter can leave us all feeling blah, but shiny beads on a classic over-sized beret is just fun! This hat is done in the round so other that the band, there is no purling, and the decreases just before and after the beads give the otherwise plain knit beret a bit of a pattern, effortlessly.
