What are you most proud of? I'm really pleased with the overall look! I'm excited to make one in a solid color, as well. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Really the only thing that's going on here besides knitting, making yarn overs and knitting some stitches together is the lateral braid stitch, which is explained quite clearly in the pattern. The hat is designed to flatter curls, dreads, or otherwise "big" hair, but there are also instructions for adding a ribbed brim for a more classic beret fit.
