FO: Lacy Beret

Quick post:






I finished this tonight, and haven't blocked it yet. I'm so excited to have made my first knitted hat!
I tried this because it’s an unconventional pattern that didn’t require knitting in the round or dpns. I didn’t check my gauge, but knitted looser so it came out slouchier.

Yarn: Patons Classic Merino Wool in Bright Red
Amount: 1 ball
Needles: Size 4 24" circular (knitted flat)
Mods: Omitted Rows 63-64 so the band didn’t turn out too tight at all. In fact, it could stand to be a bit tighter. Instead of seaming side, I single crocheted with wrong sides together.

Hi, great job on knitting this!
Is it possible for you to post photos of the beret flat on the surface? I want to see how your lace pattern came out.

I'm trying to knit this and need help choosing which yarn to purchase. I noticed that your yarn's weight is heavier than the one posted in knittingdivine, and I'm curious to see how different/similar yours came out.

Thanks!
