I just started Ysolda's Gretel beret, which can be found here:
http://ysolda.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=3

It's so lovely! I'm obsessed with berets and slouchy hats right now. I'm knitting the slouchy version in purple Malabrigo, hopefully my one skein will be enough for the whole hat. Anyone want to join me in knitting this gorgeous hat?

I'll join you! I just ordered this pattern. I'll be knitting it in Cascade 220 in a cranberry red.

I love the lattice cables on this hat, and slouchy hats are totally for the win!

Yay! Glad someone will be joining me.

I'm a dummy. I'm confused already. I just did the first round with the cable twist in it. Now it says to "work in pattern as set." Surely I'm not supposed to do another round of cable twists already?

Oh no! My pattern hasn't arrived yet so I can't see what you're talking about  Embarrassed
Maybe try e-mailing Ysolda?

I just bought this pattern!  I love the slouchy version, but I'm not sure what yarn I want to use yet.  I looked at my pattern, and I think what she means by "work in pattern" is to work as the row before the cable row.  That's how I  see it anyway, without having worked the pattern.  Hope that helps, and maybe I will join you all soon!

I just purchased this pattern, but I probably won't get to start on it until next weekend.  I am trying to decide what color I will get the most use out of...and I think I will do the slouchy version.

Well, I figured out the part I was stuck on, but now I'm stuck again. I'm on the last line before you get to the "regular and slouchy only" part, and it says to work to end of round, then k2p2, then you have the new beginning of round. But for me to keep everything in pattern, I would have to p2, k2! I don't know what to do.

I find myself going to Ysolda's site every day to look at the Gretel pattern, but since I don't have my stash yarn with me here at school (and I have a self-imposed NO MORE YARN UNTIL I HAVE A SALARY rule) I'm probably going to wait until I go home to even buy the pattern.  BUT I WANT THIS HAT SO BADLY waaaah.

I just bought it - I couldn't resist. I made the Urchin hat yesterday evening and now I'm trying to decide whether to make a grey Gretel in Rowanspun aran or a purple one in Cash Iroha. Or both.

I just bought the pattern... but I've been drooling over it for a while!  I'll have to go stash-diving to see if there's anything I can use...
