My ambition exceeds my skill! I have integrated a simple pattern stitch into a beret pattern (which called for just stockinette). Now I'm at the decrease stage and am not sure how to do the decreases while preserving the pattern stitches I stuck in.
I've browsed several hat and beret patterns, and each one seems to have a different decrease style. Any suggestions? I'd like to understand how to predict how the finished product will look based on the decrease style I use.
