The Nob Hill beret is made with deceptively easy stitches. The pattern gives a dense weave that keeps the chill out, and looks great in any color you choose. This is a true beret that lays flat when not being worn. It will fit most women (head circumference is 20" at opening). This can be modified by using either larger or smaller yarn and hooks to achieve other sizes.
