Pattern Nine from the Sweet Treats Collection.

The Blue Ice Beret is the last pattern from Sweet Treats. It is bit more involved than the others in the collection, but is still intuitive once you pick up the rhythm of the stitches. And despite the many rounds of instruction, this beret will work up quite quickly thanks to the pairing of chunky yarn and large needles.

Blue Ice is worked from the bottom up to the crown. Knit stitches are twisted during the lower portion of the hat to give definition and make the design pop off the background. Large petals grow from the ribbing and stretch toward the center of the crown.

If you wish to add more length to your beret, try extending Bottom Ribbing or working a few rounds in established pattern between Ribs & Twists and Crown of Petals sections.
