I have made this f&f beret several times and the decreases are within the pattern and well designed: http://www.knittingonthenet.com/patterns/hatberetlace.htm
I like this pattern a lot and want to knit it. I have some questions that I hope you can help me with: 1. I searched for the yarn on Paton's website and couldn't find it. Is it DK weight, if not, what weight is it? 2. Do you think I could knit this in the round? 3. What cast on did you use? Thanks for your help. Aloha... Bev

Hi Bev

I have used DK each time I've made it. I have always done it in the round - take out the two k1s outside the repeat. The other change I have made is to do the band in rib as I don't like the garter stitch band - I cast on 100 sts on 3.75mm (5) needles, rib 12 rows, then increase the next row up to 152 sts and carry on from there. (Never met a pattern I didn't tweak.)

All but the brick-coloured one in this picture are from that pattern: http://www.knittingparadise.com/t-77497-1.html
Thank you sooo much for answering my questions. You did exactly what I want to do. I don't care for the garter stitch edge either. You didn't bother to pick up stitches on your cast on edge to knit the ribbing. I think I'll cast on with the Twisted German cast on, knit my inch or so of 1 x 1 ribbing, increase to the stitches for the pattern and go from there. I'm so glad to be able to benefit from your experience. Your hats are beautiful. Thanks for the link to your work. Thanks again for your info. Aloha... Bev
