Honey Cap : the Pattern.




You need:
150 m (160 yards) DK weight yarn, such as Garnstudio Drops Cotton Merino (120 m or 131 yards per 50g)
Photographed in the color #15 Mustard.

Needles:
For ribbing: size 3.5 mm (US 4) circular needles, 40 cm (16”) long
For the pattern: size 4.0 mm (US 6) circular needles, 40 cm (16”) long + DPNs in the same size.
Also one extra DPN in the same size to use as a cable needle (CN)

Gauge:
22 stitches and 30 rows = 10 cm (2”) in stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles

Sizes:
To comfortably fit average adult head sizes (50-60 cm or 20-24”). Length from bottom to top 21 cm (8 ⅟4 “)

The hat is knitted circularly from the bottom up.

Ribbed brim:
Cast on 112 stitches on the smaller needles (3.5mm) using the long-tail CO method. Join in round placing a marker to indicate the beginning of the round (BOR). Be careful not to twist the stitches.

Ribbing round: *k 1 tbl, p 1* to the end of the round.
Continue as established until the brim measures 3 cm (about 1 ⅕”) from the cast-on edge.
Next round: Change to the bigger needles (4.0mm) and purl all the stitches until end of the round.

Charted section:
Setup round 1: *k 1, m 1, k 8, m 1, k 1, p 1, k 4, p 1, k 3, m 1, k 3, p 1, k 4, p 1*; repeat *-* 3 more times. (12 sts increased, 124 sts now on the needles.)
Setup round 2: *k 12, p 1, k 4, p 1, k 7, p 1, k 4, p 1* 4 times

Begin the charted section. Work rounds 1-4 of the chart a total of 10 times. Note that the pattern repeats 4 times every round. If you want a longer cap (a slouchier version) you can work these rounds 3-4 more times.

Repeat rounds 1-2 of the chart one more time. The work should now measure 15 cm (6 inches) from the cast-on edge.

EDIT: I've added a written pattern of the charted section, you can find it here!

Shaping the crown:
Follow the chart for crown shaping (rounds 5-23). Pattern repeats 4 times every round. Change to magic loop method or DPNs when necessary. At the end of the chart you should have 24 sts on the needles.
Round 24: k until the end of the round
Round 25: k2tog until end of the round (12 sts left)

Cut the yarn and thread it through the remaining live stitches using a tapestry needle. Pull the yarn to snugly close the gap and weave it neatly to the inside of the hat. Weave in all the other remaining yarn tails as well.

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting! Salut Chéri! You need:  yarn: 105-125 m (114 - 137 yards) worsted weight yarn. The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle. Join in round, careful not to twist the stitches. Place a marker to indicate the beginning of the round. Knit in straight Stockinette stitch (knit all

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
