Cashmere Beret - from Churchmouse

This simple, urbane beret employs a dk-weight cashmere yarn knit down to a fingering gauge for a cozy, dense fabric that's soft on even the smoothest pate. The flattering shape looks great on men and women alike. And it's very 'Euro'-our friend Craig wore his on a trip to Paris and tourists kept asking him for directions!
