1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Re: Slouchy Spiral Beret (w/pattern!) on: May 06, 2008 07:48:21 PM

It took up less than one skien of the yarn I used... I have a small head but I had alot left over so I'm sure one skien would be fine for anyone.

As for the gauge... I didn't reall measure but something like 4-5 sts/inch?

I absolutely love that color green.  What yarn is it?

Thanks! I used some Lion Wool I had (even though that seemed like an odd choice for this kind of bag) in the Lemongrass color.

This was a really easy knit and I really like the result, I based myself on a basic pattern for this shape of hat and modified it as I went along so that it wouldn't be gigantic. I'm including the pattern below which was knit on size 2 circular needles in Shibuiknit's Merino Kid (in the honey colorway)


CO 84 sts
knit 6 rounds k2,p2 ribbing

round 1- *knit 14, m1* around
round 2- knit
round 3- *knit 15, m1* around
round 4- knit

continue adding one stitch between one knit round until you reach *knit 20, m1*- here begin knitting 2 rounds between increases until you have 25 stitches in each section

begin decreases:
round 1- *knit 23, k2 tog* around
round 2- knit
round 3- *knit 22, k2 tog* around
round 4- knit

after round 10, do not knit one round between decrease rounds (ex.- round 11- *knit 18, k2 tog*, round 12- *knit 17, k2 tog*) continue in this way until you have 12 sts left then *k2 tog* around, break yarn, thread through loops and weave in ends
