This yarn is the most expensive I ever bought, $28 for a skein. It’s handdyed from Italy, Pierrot Madil, and soooo pretty I didn’t use it for ages.
Anyhow, I started out thinking I was making a beret from a pattern out of E.Zimmerman’s book, then decided that would be a waste and now I want more of a “bucket” type hat. Straight up and flat on the top.
I looked through pattern central and didn’t see any. I figure I shouldn’t decrease as much as you would with a ummmm, the regular rounded type hat. It’s tricky. I think also I’ll have to block it. Any advice???
Esp re closing the top?
