This lose fitting women's cable knit beret was hand-knit in a sunburst twisting cable pattern. The yarn used is a very soft hand-spun, hand-dyed cotton and silk blend; this accounts for the variation in color throughout the piece. The beret measures approx. 24" in circumference at the opening and approx. 34.5" in circumference at it's widest point. Hand wash cold in mild detergent (such as Woolite), lay flat to dry.
