This beret uses a sprinkle stitch pattern at the bottom for texture, but through the decreases, the sprinkled purl stitches grow closer and closer together until you’re left with a circle of reverse stockinette at the crown. This design was born out of a desire for a simple beret with a little something for interest. But in addition to that the concept was inspired by my belief that things have a way of working out in the end. The pattern is a reminder that things do come together. It’s an especially great thing for me to keep in mind during this hectic year.
The beret knits up quickly and is definitely light enough for spring. It’s got a little slouch, but not too much. If you’d like more slouch you can work in pattern for longer before beginning the decreases, just make sure you do a full pattern repeat otherwise the purl stitches will be out of place. I hope you enjoy it. And let me know if you find any mistakes.
Ladies and Gentlemen, for you today I have something special. I have a combo post both with an FO and with a pattern. My first real pattern in fact. I’ve been designing things for ages, but usually as I go along, with no notes kept. So today, it is with great pleasure that I offer you the first knittingprettyindc pattern.

This is a quick knit, simple with just a little something to keep it interesting to the eye and in the hands. The name comes from a favorite nickname from a favorite friend of mine. It’s sweet and simple, but it makes me feel special when she says it.
This neckwarmer was designed out of necessity. I recently got a new coat, and one of it’s best details is the stand-up collar. The collar can be turned down to wear scarves, but I wanted to chance to show it off sometimes. My cowls are mostly too bulky to sit under it, but with nothing underneath, the wind works it’s way in and I end up shivering. So in came a neckwarmer, fitted enough to sit well underneath the neck, but oh so very warm.
Prettybird Neckwarmer Pattern:
Yarn: About 150 yds of DK weight yarn.
Needle: US 4 straight or circular needles.*
Gauge: 8 sts= 1″ in Cable Patttern.

*You may notice that I used a US size 3 needle, but I tend to knit loosely and always have to go down at least one needle size, so if you generally knit to gauge, I estimate a size 4 will work for you.
Please let me know if you find any mistakes. Oh and you can queue it up here. Enjoy!
