Lion Brand® Vanna's Sequins


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


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.


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.

With double pointed needles and leaving a long yarn tail, cast on 12 sts and divide onto 4 needles placing 3 sts on each needle. Place marker for beg of rnd and join by working the first st on left hand needle with the working yarn from the right hand needle and being careful not to twist sts.

Lace Beret Reviewed by Elly Laff on 2015-09-07 **
i followed all the instructions exactly, and it did not come out big enough to fit an adult head.
