Lace Doily Beret KAL

December’s project in the BOBBOL 2013 Series

Fashionable without flattening your hairdo — December’s KAL was 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.

Featured Techniques

  • easy center start
  • double yarn over honeycomb lace ground stitch
  • 3-to-2 decrease
  • graduated needle sizing
  • blocking in 3 dimensions over a plate

Although the pattern doesn’t specifically call for beads, I’ll show an example where the crochet hook method makes it easy to play with your own design in more than one color of bead.
