Pattern Description:

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.
