Hi everyone! I am ready to move on from square items, and I wanted to make this easy 2-needle beret: http://www.knitlist.com/98gift/beret.htm.

I started it last night but frogged it because the math doesn't work out. If you follow the pattern for rows 8&9, you end up with 65 stitches, not 49. It continues on with what I think are the wrong number of stitches. Am I wrong or is it the pattern?

Should I just ignore the # of st and follow the pattern? Since I have only made scarves and dishrags previously, I'm also new at reading patterns.  Embarrassed Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

The math does work out.  I suspect you misinterpreted that row because it doesn't clearly direct you to repeat those sts.  You're to inc every other st and k 1 st in between. (if written out, it would be 'k1, inc in to next st, k1, inc,' etc.)

Thank you so much, I knew I was doing something wrong! So basically it would be k1, k1+inc, K1, K1+inc...? Sorry, like I said I am totally new at reading patterns.

When a pattern says to inc in a st, use a kfb. So for row 8 - k1, kfb, k1, kfb, k1 kfb, etc.  Then for row 10 - (K2, inc in next st) you k2, kfb, k2, kfb, etc.

If you want to use another increase, like M1, then your method of "k1, k1+inc, K1, K1+inc" would work for row 8, and on row 10, you'd k3, inc, k3, inc....
