Round 5: ssk, [1/1 RC, 1/1 LC] twice, k2tog, p 1, 2/2 RC, p 1, k 7, p 1, 2/2 LC, p 1; repeat until end of round (8 stitches decreased)
Round 6: k 10, p 1, k 4, p 1, k 7, p 1, k 4, p 1; repeat until end of round

Round 14: k 6, p 1, k 4, p 1, k 7, p 1, k 4, p 1; repeat until end of round
Round 15: k 1, 1/1 RC, 1/1 LC, k 1, p 1, 2/2 RC, p 1, 2/1 RC, k 1, 1/2 LC, p 1, 2/2 LC, p 1; repeat until end of round

Round 23: [k 1, k2tog, ssk] twice; repeat until end of round (16 stitches decreased)

P.S. Here's a check list of the abbreviations I've used so you don't have to jump between two posts :) The explanations for the cables are in the diagram below.

CN = Cable needle
k = knit
p = purl
st(s) = stitch(es)
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together (decreasing one st)
ssk = slip, slip, knit slipped sts together (decreasing one st)
s = slip a stitch
s2kp2 = slip two stitches together, knit one, pass two slipped stitches over

  2. I think Row 13 should be "ssk, 1/1 LC, 1/1 RC, k2tog, p 1, 2/2 RC, p 1, k 7, p 1, 2/2 LC, p 1; repeat until end of round (8 stitches decreased)" instead.

    Great pattern, thanks for posting!

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!

(By Far) The Easiest Way to K4Tog.

I have published earlier a post on an easy way to k4tog - knit 4 stitches together - which is an essential stitch in my Cloud mitten pattern. As you might already know it is a bit challenging especially with 2.5 mm bamboo needles that not only have sharp tips but are bendy and especially prone to snapping. Stubborn as I am, I wasn't going to give up and change the design just to make it easier to knit. So I came up with the idea of using a tiny crochet hook to pull the working stitch through other three. 
I was planning to use this same method when knitting the second pair of Cloud mittens, but alas, I couldn't find the hook anywhere. I seem to have misplaced it and I just can't remember where I put it... And as you know I don't crochet often so the second smallest hook I had was size 3.5 mm which didn't work for this purpose for obvious reasons. 
So I was back to square one trying to figure out how to do the k4tog in an easy way when I got the idea of reversing t…
