This playful beret makes the most of one precious skein of Koigu. A little touch of beading 'gilds the lily.' And the knitting is easy-peasy—even with the beading rows you might get one finished in an evening or two. With all that, plus a shape that's timeless and flattering, this little beret makes the perfect gift.
