I am so pleased to be able to offer this. Here is a real luxury yarn, paired with sparkling beads to make a fast and fun project, perfect for this time of year.

The pattern is for a most stunning beaded beret, as designed by Susan Sarabasha.

Here is how Susan describes it:

A lacey beaded beret with ‘no stringing’ beads. You will barely know this hat is on your head. Worked in the round from the center top to the ribbing.

The yarn is from Shibui, their fingering weight Staccato, with 191 yards (175 meters) per skein of 70% superwash merino. 30% silk. One skein is all you will need to make this wonderful piece.

The colorway is called Bordeaux and though it is not the same yarn as Susan used for her original, it will give a very similar look.

For beads, all that is needed is 130 size 6/0s. The Silver Lined Crystal look dramatic and I think they are perfect with this. I love how Susan's original really shimmers with those beads on top. If you would prefer a bead that blends more, just let me know and I'll include those in your kit.

The kit will consist of one skein of Staccato and the 6/0 beads.

Note also that the kit will not automatically include the pattern. I know some knitters prefer to get it directly as a PDF file of the pattern from Susan via her Ravelry web page. And if you want a copy of your pattern in your Ravelry library, then that is what you should do. Alternatively, if you would like a printed copy, please make sure the "Pattern" drop-down menu is set to that. We also can email the pattern to you via email (just be aware that it is not automatic; I have to manually send it to you and do so when your kit is ready to ship).

A wonderfully luxurious delight!
