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.
- 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.
If you missed the knit-along for Lace Doily Beret, tutorials, tips and techniques are still available in the December 2013 KnitHeartStrings archives. Please purchase the pattern here —
Knit, learn, and enjoy the making!
