Lattice beret

May 5, 2012

Here’s a beret worked in a simple lattice stitch. The pattern comes from a leaflet from the 60s. I had to tweak the pattern a bit, but significantly less than these vintage patterns usually need!

I used a worsted/aran weight (Lamb’s Pride worsted in kiwi with contrast stripes in Taos) and a 6.5mm hook.
The pattern called for each row being done in a different colour. While I think this’d look great and would really showcase the neat zig-zags the lattice stitch makes, I just didn’t have time or patience. So I just added two stripes and that was that.

The pattern:

Ch 5 and join with ss to form a ring. 5 sc into ring and ss into the first sc.

2nd round: Ch 4. 1 dc in the same st. (1 dc, ch1, 1 dc for lattice) in each st to end of round. Ss in 3rd ch of beginning 4 ch.

If you want to change the colour at this point, fasten off and join a new colour in the ch-1 sp of the first lattice. If you don’t want to change colour, just ss into the ch-1 sp of the first lattice and continue on.

3rd round: Ch 4. 1 dc in same sp. *lattice in space before next lattice. Lattice in next lattice* around, ending with lattice in space before first lattice. Ss in 3rd st of ch 4.

4th round: Ss into ch1 sp of first lattice. Ch4 and dc in same space. Lattice in each lattice to the end of round. Ss in 3rd st of ch4.

5th round: Repeat 3rd round.

6th-8th round: Repeat 4th round.

9th round: Repeat 3rd round.

At this point, the pattern called for 6 rows working even (meaning repeat 4th round). I found that after 6 rows the hat wasn’t slouchy enough so I actually ended up working 12 rows even.

Next round: ss into ch-1 sp of first lattice. 1 sc in each lattice and between each lattice to end of round. Ss in 1st sc.

Next round: 1sc in first 2 sts. *Sc next two sts tog. 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts. Repeat from * to the end of round. Ss in 1st sc.

Next round: Sc in each st to end. Ss in 1st sc. Fasten off.
