Whip up a lacy yet warm accessory that's perfect for transitional weather and only takes 1 skein of yarn. This floral beret can be worn in the traditional style or as a slouchy tam. Worked from the top down using basic stitches, the hat begins with floral lace and chainspace shaping that transitions to solid stitches and a simply textured row brim. Suggestions are given for easy ways to customize the fit.
