– fashionable without flattening your hairdo –
December’s KAL will be Lace Doily Beret. This beret is constructed in the style of a lace doily with a center start and repeating medallions. The beret is flattering and lightweight for fashionable wear without flattening your hairdo.
Lace Doily Beret pattern will be available to KnitHeartStrings members as a FREE DOWNLOAD December 5th in the Knit-A-Longs area of the site.
For this KAL, you will need a 50g ball of fingering weight yarn and knitting needles for circular knitting in sizes US 3 – 6 (3.25mm 4mm). Preview the cover page of the pattern here for more specifics. Then gather your supplies now and be ready to start knitting as soon as you get the complete pattern. Note: This creates a shallow French-style beret 10″ – 11″ in diameter. If you want a deeper, slouchier beret/tam, you can use sport weight yarn and go up a needle size or two.
Meantime, you can also review /practice the Easy “Cheating” Center Start covered earlier this year so you’ll be ready to jump in knitting.
Note: Premium Level members have early access. Check the Premium Area for your coupon code to deliver the pattern free to your Ravelry library.
