Painterly Beret

Lion Brand® Homespun®


12 dc + 5 rows = about 4 in. (10 cm).

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


1. Beret is worked in continuous rounds beginning at top.
2. In this pattern, dc are worked in the spaces between 2 dc throughout.
3. When you see "- 12 sts" in the instructions, this lets you know how many sts you will have at the end of that specific row.

Ch 4, sl st in first ch to form a ring.
Rnd 1: Work 12 dc in ring. Place marker in first st for beg of rnd; move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 2: Working in spaces between dc here and throughout this pattern, work 2 dc in each space around - 24 dc at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: *2 dc in next space, dc in next space; rep from * around - 36 dc.
Rnd 4: *2 dc in next space, dc in next 2 spaces; rep from * around - 48 dc.
Rnd 5: *2 dc in next space, dc in next 3 spaces; rep from * around - 60 dc.
Rnd 6: *2 dc in next space, dc in next 4 spaces; rep from * around - 72 dc.
Rnd 7: *2 dc in next space, dc in next 5 spaces; rep from * around - 84 dc.
Rnds 8 and 9: Dc in each space around.
Rnd 10: *Dc in next 3 spaces, skip next space; rep from * around - 63 sts rem.
Rnd 11: *Dc in next 2 spaces, skip next space; rep from * around - 42 sts rem.
Rnds 12 and 13: Sc in each st around.

Painterly Beret Reviewed by Olivia Blanchard on 2015-02-26 **
I made this up and it is small, like for a toddler or baby. It looks so good here in the picture.
