This lace beret won't take all day to knit but you'll want to keep wearing it all day long to show it off. Debbie shows you how to cast on with smaller circular needles and create the ribbed band, then switch to larger circulars and create the lace pattern. You'll learn left-leaning diagonals and right-leaning diagonals to create this sweet zig-zag pattern, as well as decreasing at the end. Pattern included - a $6 value!
