Oh wow, I love it!  This is one of the prettiest berets I've seen yet!  Thank you for the link to the pattern, too!  Grin

A couple of people on ravelry said they'd just gone with a regular long tail cast on and it worked ok, so I just did that, cast on 120, and it worked out fine Smiley

I've attempted this twice with the crochet start! So glad to know the 120 long tail cast on worked for you, I'm excited to try it and start one more time! Hah.

I was already going to try this hat after seeing this post, but then I saw a girl at the store wearing one! I really need to make it now. As soon as christmas is over, i'm on it. Almost any fine gauge yarn would work, right? I mean, I have some sport weight, is that okay?

a little nonsense now and then, is relished by the wisest men. W.W

That looks great. I really like the way the top of it looks. I hate when I knit a hat and the top decreases turn out all wonky but yours look really good. Grin

It looks very pretty, you've inspired me to knit one for my friend  Cheesy
But I am having slight problems with the lace pattern, I've never been very good at following charts even if they are super simple haha
At every round I work the eyelets, there are less stitches everytime. Like somewhere in the pattern I forget to increase to balance the decrease. But I'm trying to be careful!
 Huh  Huh  Huh
So in the chart, the yo square just means to bring the yarn in front, right?
Does the first row go like *K1, bring the yarn inbetween the needles, K4, DD, K4, Bring yarn inbetween needles* ?

Can someone help please?

Yep, that's it! Something to watch for, especially if you knit it all on DPNs, like I did, is to make sure you do that last YO at the end of the first lace round. The first time, mine got all pulled out cause it was at the end of the needle, and then every round after that was missing one YO and it all went horribly wrong. I ripped back to the ribbing, and started again, juggling the stitches to make sure it couldn't go missing, and the second time it was spot on Smiley

I have a huge issue with UFP's, I have a whole drawer full of them <insert eye roll>. This is awesome though and you should be proud!
