It took a bit longer to actually blog about this. Baby MiH is teething (I cannot remember when he was not teething to be honest - any tips?) and apparently 3am is party time at ours now.
So hopefully we (you and me) can make sense of the notes I made when knitting Cee's beret. It is not guaranteed, but I will try my best. if you spot any mistakes - please share!
The diametre of the beret is 26.5 cm
Pattern: see below
Yarn: Tanis Fibre Arts Silk Mulberry in Silver Label Mulberry Silk (Boysenberry) (one skein) - the yarn is held double.
Needles: 4 mm circular and change to DPNs when needed
CO: 110 stitches in the round (to join in the round, see my tutorial here) - remember the yarn is held double.
Beware not to twist the stitches
Brim: Work in twisted rib for 5 cm (ktbl, p)
Increase - set up rows
R1:* k2, m1* to end of row
R3: *k3, m1* to end of row
Then knit for another 10 cm
R1: *k3, k2tog* to end of row
R15: *k2, k2tog* to end of row
R29: *k1. k2tog* to end of row
Finally add an i-cord on a few rows (depending how long your loop wants to be)
