so here is my slouchy beret! great for the fall. i made a pompom for it, but the only yarn i had left had been knitted. so it's a very curly pompom, and i haven't decided if i want it on yet.

PHOTOS:

(unfortunately after two years of lurking, i haven't read my 10-post mark yet, haha!)

01 : it is very, very hard to take a picture of the back of your head.
02 : view from the front.
03 : back, with pompom!

sorry the photos aren't the greatest!

THE PATTERN:

MATERIALS:
- less than a skein of bernat satin, i believe it is!
(it's cheapo acrylic stuff, but it's amazingly soft & warm.)
- 1 set of 3mm circular needles
- 1 set of 4.5mm circular needles
- 1 set (4) 4.5mm double-pointed needles
- tapestry needle
- scissors

TERMS:
ssk = slip two stitches knit-wise, and knit them together

GAUGE:
5 rows/7 sts = 1 inch (4.5mm needles)


CO 96 sts with the smaller circulars.

rows 1-6: (k1, p1) to end of row. (don't forget to join the yarn, untwisted, at the end of the first row!)
row 7: place all sts on the larger circulars. (k1, m1, p1) until end of row. you should now have 144 sts.
rows 8-22: (k2, p1) until end of row.
row 23: (k2, p1) the first 17 sts, ssk. *(k2, p1) the next 16 sts, ssk. repeat from * until end of row.

keep knitting around and around, making regular decreases. when you see that you made a decrease in the previous row, you know it's time to make another. (note: if this or any other part of the pattern is terribly unclear, please let me know!) when your stitches become so few that it's hard to knit using the circular needle, transfer to your DPNs.

FINISHING:
keep decreasing until you get to the very tip of the hat, and there's no hole left. bind off any extra stitches, and slip the tail of the yarn onto a tapestry needle. thread the yarn through to the inside of the hat, and sew the yarn into it as you would any other finished garment. if you would like a pompom, i followed these instructions to make mine!

feel free to ask any questions about the project or the pattern (it's the first i've written!).

I like the "star" pattern your decrease made. And I vote to keep the pompom (everybody likes a good pompom Cheesy).

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.
