Designed by Rita Taylor

This attractive beret is knitted using double knitting yarn and features a pretty leaf-shaped lace motif, with 12 leaves falling from the crown to the brim.

Sizing:

One size only; fits a 21” (53 cm) head

Yarn requirements:

Blacker Yarns Gotland DK (100% pure Gotland wool, 50 g = 110 m / 119 yds), 2 balls

Yarn is held doubled throughout - DK yarn held double could also be substituted for 110 m / 119 yds of chunky yarn.

Gauge:

20 sts x 24 rows = 10 cm / 4” in stocking stitch and holding yarn doubled

Needles:

3.75 mm / US size 5 - straight knitting needles
5.00 mm / US size 8 - straight knitting needles

Always remember to use needles which result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions:

Large darning needle for sewing up the seam

Skill Level:
Advanced beginner - this pattern is a great starting project for those looking to begin their adventure with lace

Notes:
Pattern instructions are written for one size but, like all knitwear, the hat is reasonably stretchy. So if you would like to alter the size a little, simply alter the size of knitting needles used. If you would like to customise the size by more than this, then add or remove multiples of 8 stitches to accommodate the design.
