This beret is fun to knit and fun to wear with its lace brim and colorful stripes. Since this pattern is offered in sizes ranging from baby to adult, this is a hat that everyone in your family can enjoy. Molly calls for a fingering weight alpaca which results in a warm lightweight piece but this hat could also use up those leftover sock yarns. Work Molly in a solid color for a more conservative style or stripe randomly for a look all your own!
