from Woolly Wormhead
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Meret

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl stitches
  • knitting in the round
  • lace
  • increases and decreases

Pattern Description:

This Hat was the Woolly Wormhead Mystery Beret for November 2008. We had a lot of fun during the KAL and I hope you enjoy the pattern too.

To get the slouch originally intended, you'll need to a) hit row gauge b) use a yo method that creates a nice big hole and c) fully block the lace. However, knitting additional repeats will create extra slouch and compensate for differences in gauge, and notes for this are included.

Pattern is provided in both written and charted format.
