Needlebind round start.
I start with 14 stitches with the Finnish stitch 2+2 F1.
In the 1 rnd you increase all stitches and then attach a stitch marker, you know when a round starts and ends.
The 2 rnd 1 stitch normal and the secound increase
The 3 rnd 2 stitches normal and the third increase
The 4 rnd 3 stitches normal and the fourth increase
The 5 rnd 4 stitches normal and the fifth increase
The 6 rnd 5 stitches normal and the sixth increase
The 7 rnd measure, is the diameter 25 or 26 cm then all stitches normal one round, depending the size of your head.
The 8 rnd 5 stitches normal and the sixth decrease
The 9 rnd 4 stitches normal and the fifth decrease
The 10 rnd now measure, if the baret fits then two rounds normal needlebinding for the edge. (if not than another round of 3 stitches normal and the fourth decrease and measure). Then finish the beret. You can also simply pull this beautiful beret over your ears when it’s very cold they stay warm. 🙂
These berets are made with Fin. stitch 2+2, starts with 20 stitches.
