Is anybody in love with this beret that Lindsay Lohan is wearing in this picture? If so, any ideas on how to make it?

Ooh, that IS cute! It looks like you'd need a lot of hair to make it look right though, so I'm out. But it shouldn't be too hard to find a stitch pattern like that in a reference book, like maybe Vogue Knitting. The hardest part would be the decreases--decreasing in pattern, oy!

That is really cute. Its not my look, but I know a friend who would die for something like this. If you figure out a pattern (or somebody else does) I would love to see it.

Wow, I like this. Yet another project that makes me want to learn pattern drafting. Because I know it's not that hard, but I feel the urge to play around with knits and purls in various ways until I get this pattern. The only thing that seems hard to me is starting it... Too bad we can't see the top! If only I had the lightweight yarn I'd need to start this... I'll add this to the list of things to make next (after I finish the 5 projects I have to do... Roll Eyes)

yeh that is a really nice hat. looks difficult! i only really started knitting properly about a month ago tho. I have actually just finished my first piece from a pattern which was a hat, which is a beret like that but without the cabling, its supposed to be a baker boy cap but u can have it either way, just dont sew the peak on! the pattern was from Sirdar, and it was called California Girls

I've been thinking about this pattern.  Isn't it just a slightly baggier version of the pithy hat with a different cable?  If you look closely, you can see that LL's hat is seamed (you can see where the two edges of the cabled pattern meet), but I think it would be easier to do in the round.  I think this hat is adorable, and I've been meaning to make a pithy hat, so I'll play around with the cable this weekend and see if I get something even moderately similar. 

P.S.  As for how to handle the decreases in the cable pattern, if you look at the pithy hat pattern you only decrease on the last two rows of the hat before you pull the yarn through. 

P.P.S.  If you want something with a less gathered top (you can see what I mean by gathered in the pithy hat link with Kiki's red hat), Elizabeth Zimmermann gives a guide for how to make a beret in Knitting Without Tears (I've sadly left my copy at school, 150 miles away, so I'll have to improvise).  For those of you who don't care to spend money (although I've found it's totally worth it--I love her wit!), check out your local library.

Wow...I love parenthetical comments.

This is a pretty old thread, but I was just wondering if anyone managed to figure out a pattern for this?

It's so cute--I would really like to, but I have to finish my holiday knitting! I did find a good cable pattern for it. Do you want to test-knit this pattern draft and tell me how it comes out? If not, maybe I'll try knitting this after my presents are done and make adjustments to the pattern...

knit-twist lattice pattern: multiple of 16 sts + 2
Row 1 and all WS rows: purl
Row 2: k1, *LT, k4, RT, repeat from *, end k1
Row 4: k2, *LT, k2, RT, k2, repeat from *
Row 6: k3, *LT, RT, k4, rep from *, last repeat k3
Row 8: k4, *RT, k6, rep from *, end last repeat k4
Row 10: k3, *RT, LT, k4, rep from *, end last repeat k3
Row 12: k2, *RT, k2, LT, k2, rep from *
Row 14: k1, *RT, k4, LT, rep from *, end k1
Row 16: k8, *LT, k6, rep from *, end k2

300 yards? DK weight yarn
16" circular needles or DPNs, sizes 4 and 6

Cast on 108 sts. Join to work in the round, and work in 1x1 rib with smaller needle for about 1 inch.
Switch to larger needles, place marker, and work 6 repeats of the lattice pattern as panels of 18 sts. (or this could be continuous instead, with stitch count adjusted? But I do see edge stitches in the picture of Lindsay's hat)
Work pattern until hat measures about 10-11".
Next two rounds: k2tog around.
Last round: k2tog around, end k1.
Cut yarn, leaving long tail, thread through remaining sts, and pull closed.
