Beret and Muff

Lion Brand® Wool-Ease® Thick & Quick® - Fun Fur®


8 sts and 11 rows = 4 in /10cm over St st using size 15 (10mm) needles with 1 strand A and 3 strands B held tog. 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

With size 15 (10mm) needles and A, cast on 69 sts for crown, Add 3 strands of B and hold tog with A. Work in reverse St st as follows:
Next row (WS) K9, *place marker, k17; rep from * twice more, end place marker, k9.

Beret and Muff Reviewed by Pat Miller on 2014-04-11 *****
This is a fun pattern, that is made quick. I used wool instead OF the wool ease thick and quick and it made a nice hat. I will make the muff another time.
