With a lace pattern inspired by the pine cones that adorn the boughs of our graceful evergreen trees, the Hemlock Ridge Beret will keep you warm and cozy on any midwinter stroll through a piney woods.
This pattern has been professionally tech edited and test knit to reduce the potential for error.
The Hemlock Ridge Beret is knit in the round from the bottom up. The pattern is charted, but also includes complete written directions so the ability to read a chart is not necessary to work this pattern.
Blocking is especially essential for a successful finished project with this pattern. The lace will really open up when blocked and the finished circumference/dimensions will be significantly larger than before blocking.
A bulky weight yarn with good stitch definition and little to no halo is recommended. Slight tonals will work, but variegated yarn will distract from the lace pattern.
Using larger-sized needles, 14 sts/18 rnds to 4" x 4" (10 cm x 10 cm) in stockinette stitch, unblocked.
110 yards of Chunky weight

Growing up on a rural Southern Tier dairy farm, my family knew the value of handmade. My mother taught me to knit at an early age, and although I didn't see the value in it then, the enjoyment I received from creating something with my own hands has never left me.
My knitting patterns reflect my traditional, rural upbringing paired with a sense of taste that is becoming more and more liberated with each subsequent design. I notice my color palette becoming more adventurous and while my patterns themselves still follow those uncomplicated traditional lines, I can feel that same sense of adventure tugging at my sleeve and asking me to test new boundaries.
I am always happy to hear from fellow knitters and welcome questions on any of my designs - before or after purchase.
