Beret, Mittens & Ene
size: ~56 cm
needles:
5,0
or size needed to obtain gauge
gauge:
16 s/10 cm
in stocking stitch
yarn:
Bulky. You can use something like SandnesGarn Easy (107g~110m), SandnesGarn Alfa Glitter (100g~120m), Mambo, Katia Peru (110g~130m)...


Cast on 72 stitch. Join in the round, being careful not to twist stitches. Place stitch marker to indicate start of round.

Now work for the brim by knitting 2 and purling 2. k2 p2 for 7 rounds (or desired length).

rnd 8: *k1, m1, k1, p2* repeat *-* to end (90sts) make stitch by knitting throuh back loop (tbl)

rnd 9-15: knit

rnd 16: k9, m1, *k10,m1* repeat *-* to end (99sts)

rnd 17: knit and keep knitting until the main body of the hat (excluding the brim) measures approximately 17 cm.

start crown shapings:
rnd 1: k9, *k8, k2tog* repeat *-* to end
rnd 2: knit
rnd 3: *k7, k2tog* repeat *-* to end
rnd 4: knit

You are decreasing 10 sts per round. Keep going like this, with one stitch less between the decreases on each round until...

rnd 14: *k1, k2tog* repeat *-* to end
rnd 15: knit
rnd 16 AND 17: *k2tog* repeat *-* to end

Break yarn and thread through remaining sts and tighten to close. Weave in all ends, put beret in your head and make faces to the mirror :D

  1. Hola Jatta!! Greetings from Madrid!! I have been told by Aini that you are looking for an special knitting wool that is made in Spain...I have a friend who owns a wool and knit shop in Barcelona and she maybe can help you to find what you are looking for. Her name is Jeni and she is american, so not any issue with the language ;o). Good luck!!

  3. hello jatta,
    what a beautiful beret, thank you for sharing it.
    the scarf is so lovely too, is it your own pattern that is in the free section? the "holes" look like a web.

    i am not sure about one sentence in the first decrease row where you say to knit 9 then *knit 8, K2Tg* repeat, is there a k2Tg after the knit 9 that is missing?

    what's your ID on ravelry?
    mine is Zaz :)

  4. Hi! Thanks for visiting :D

    The scafr in boh pictures is Nancy Bush's Ene's Scarf. Lovely pattern, I recommend!

    Decreases in pattern are written correctly, theres totally 99sts in beret befote decreases, so I "evened up" those stitches in first decrease round. I hope my explanation makes sense :D

    My Ravelry ID is Jatta, let's see there!
