This beret is classic and charming and the tiny eyelet cables make it fun. It is designed to fit snug on top of the head, not overly slouchy. It's an easy mock cable pattern that is knit in the round and is great for beginners. The cables are integrated into the crown decreases and the nub is optional. My favorite aspects of this beret are are the shape and fit, and the stitch pattern is easy to memorize.
