The Falling Leaves beret pattern evokes the essence of the season for which it was named with a border of leaves swirling one into another around its perimeter. This lovely leaf stitch pattern is a modification of Barbara Walker’s timeless ‘Fern Lace’ pattern. Additional details include twisted rib and a twelve-point star raised decrease on the crown.
