Miss Taylor's Beret

Regular price $6.50 $0.00
This lush, feminine beret is inspired by the turban caps popular during the Regency period. Miss Taylor's Beret updates the turban into a modern, wearable style, featuring a band of delicate floral colorwork perfect for Fair Isle beginners. Knitted in the round in sport weight wool yarn, with an optional tassel for Regency charm, it is an imagining of the kind of pretty cap Miss Taylor might have worn during her Hartfield years.
