Urban Flair Beret

Lion Brand® Festive Fur - Microspun


24 sts + 28 rnds = 4 in. [10 cm] in k 1, p 1 rib with B on smaller needle. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

With smaller needle and B cast on 72 sts. Place marker for beg of rnd and join, being careful not to twist sts.
Rnd 1: *K 1, p 1, rep from * around.
Rep Rnd 1 for k 1, p 1 rib until piece measures 5˝ in. [14 cm] from beg.
Next Rnd (Inc Rnd): *K 2, inc 1 in next st, rep from * around – 96 sts.
Next Rnd: Knit.
Rep last 2 rnds once – 128 stitches. Join A and change to larger needles.
Next Rnd (Inc Rnd): With 1 strand of A and 1 strand of B held tog, *K 7, inc 1, rep from * around – 144 sts.
Work 6 rnds even, then work dec rnds as follows:
Next Rnd: (K 1, k2tog) around – 96 sts.
Next Rnd: Work even.
Rep last 2 rounds once – 64 sts.
Next Rnd: K2tog around – 32 sts.
Next Rnd: Work even.
Next Rnd: K2tog around – 16 sts.
Cut yarn leaving a long tail. Thread tail into large-eyed blunt needle, then through all sts on needle. Pull tightly together and knot.

Needs Revision Reviewed by Janet on 2013-06-12 *
I made this pattern following directions, and it did not look like anything pictured. Additionally, I bought 2 balls of festive fur, but only needed one, so I'm not sure if the other reviewer is right in saying you should do 6 inches instead of 6 round, but whatever the case, following the pattern as is gives very unsatisfactory results.
