December’s KAL for Lace Doily Beret wraps up the year of BOBBOL 2013 with some techniques we have seen previously (you can use these as a practice review or just applaud yourself on all you have accomplished so far). There are also some new things to continue our journey in taking the art of knitting to new heights.

To get started on the Lace Doily Beret, there is a photo tutorial for Easy “Cheating” Center Start to help you if you need it.

Yarn Overs at Beginning of Round

The rounds of Lace Doily Beret often begin with a yarn over (or even a double yarn over), so a review of this similar technique article should be helpful if you are pondering how this might work and look.

New Journeys

Watch for upcoming discussion of these other techniques used in later stages of knitting Lace Doily Beret:

  • 3-to-2 decrease
  • graduated needle sizing
  • beret vs. tam?
  • blocking in 3 dimensions over a plate(s)
