L32291 - Lace Beret
Created By: D Diane
Craft: knit
Materials: Cascade Superwash worsted
Pattern Source: lionbrand: Lace Beret

I too had problems imagining how, given what I was producing, would end with a hat that looked like the one provided with the pattern. In fact I was so disappointed that I ripped it out about half way and began again, trying to keep the stitches tighter to prevent the large holes that were forming.

I have now completed the project and I am posting photos which I think would have been very helpful from Lion Brand so knitters could in fact have a clear image of what the project was supposed to look like, especially in the first half of the work.

I would love to be able to communicate with other knitters who made this hat to compare notes. I, for example, was unable to use a circular needle when that change was requested. I have a complete set of circular needles but could not find one short enough to mount this project on without stretching the hat, something that I was really trying to avoid, given the 'lacy' effect I was getting.

I would also like to see a real close-up of someone's work so I can compare it to mine. I am not sure that my side looks the way it is meant to.

Lastly, this hat is heavily textured and I wonder how best to block it so as to not flatten out the details. I'm not sure that it should be blocked as i know that the cascade superwash i used becomes very soft after washing and I am worried about the hat loosing its body.
