This gorgeous Seed Stitch Beret, with leaf decreases to the crown can be purchased from The Casting On Couch. There is an additional video included in this knitting pattern. The video explains how to get started knitting this beret.

Seed stitch, also known as Moss Stitch is worked in the round. Both 31/2mm and 4mm circular needles are used. It progresses to this wonderful leaf decrease at the crown, which then requires a set of 31/2mm double pointed needles to finish.

It fits a head circumference range starting from: 48cm to 64cm, meaning it fits children and adults.

This pattern is a PDF download that is emailed to your account upon receipt of funds. I do not have printed versions as yet of this pattern.

I have 3 video tutorials to compliment the knitting pattern.
One gives tips on working moss or seed stitch in the round whilst offering video images of the beret.
The other 2 remaining videos give a row by row account of the final decreases that form the pretty leaf motif at the crown. Enter the links into your browser:
