Lion Brand« Vanna's Sequins

GAUGE:

20 sts + 24 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) in St st ( K on RS, p on WS).

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

ssk (slip, slip, knit) Slip next 2 sts as if to knit, one at a time, to right needle; insert left needle into fronts of these 2 sts and knit them tog - 1 st decreased
Yo (yarn over) An increase that also creates a small decorative hole (eyelet) in the fabric, worked as follows:
1. Bring yarn to front, between the needles.
2. Take yarn to back, over the right needle. This creates the new st. You are now ready to proceed with the next st as instructed.
sk2p (slip-k2tog-pass slipped st over)
A double decrease worked as follows:
1. Insert right needle as if to knit, and slip the next st from the left needle to the right needle.
2. Knit the next 2 sts together.
3. With tip of left needle, lift the slipped st (the 2nd st on right needle) up and over the k2tog (first st on right needle) and off the needle - you have decreased 2 sts.

NOTES:

1. Beret is worked in rounds from the top down.
2. Beret is worked in the rnd with double pointed needles, changing to a circular needle when sts have been sufficiently increased.

Lace Beret Reviewed by Suzette on 2014-01-29 ****
I just finished making this hat 2 days ago and I have to say it knits up into a gorgeous detailed beret.

Agree with the other review the top started out looking like it will be full of gaps, but it creates a beautiful pattern and the side pattern has less gaps so it ends up looking less like a lace hat. If the yarn is thick enough it can have a fuller body to the hat.

I just finished the hat on Monday and have had 4 requests - it really looks nice once finished. Great detail!! It's worth waiting till you get to the side panels to really begin to see the pattern taking shape, at this point you will see the full detail of the top of the hat.

It's not really a true winter hat due to the lace style pattern on the top. But you could get away with it on the not so cold winter days and definitely in the spring.

The picture on the website is a side view. I pulled the sides down almost like a beanie I preferred that look.
