This petite lace beret in three sizes (S/M/L) with matching ruffled wristlets, adds a light layer of warmth or keeps hair in place during the blustery days of fall and spring. The pretty, biased openwork motif has lace knitting on every round, but its complexity is alleviated by the circular construction of the pieces, where the right side of the work is visible throughout.
