Complimentary StitchSaver™ Row Checker
Designer Knitting Pattern
A band of little cables in ribbing starts the pattern. These cables are a delight because they do not require a cable needle. Then after adding 6 double increases every few rows, followed by double decreases you’ll have reached the crown of the hat. At which point you continue with a tiny I-cord tab that adds the finishing touch – just like every French beret.
This pattern includes a list of all abbreviations and a glossary of terms. It is accompanied by our proprietary StitchSaver™ Row Checker. Plus, a link is provided to Knitting Help on our web site.
StitchSaver™ Row Checker
"It is hard to make a mistake with our unique complimentary Row Checker. It helps you keep track of stitch count row-by-row for each section of the pattern, plus all increase and decrease shaping. With check off boxes for each row you can put this project aside for a week, a month or a year and return to the exact spot where you stopped."
For your convenience, we’ve collected definitions for abbreviations, links to tutorial videos that may make knitting your project easier and more fun, as well as guides to techniques and tailoring. Visit the Knitting Help page on our website.
