Cast on 60  (68,76) sts
Join in the round, being careful not to twist sts.
Place stitch marker to indicate start of round.
 Roll Brim:
Work stocking stitch by knitting every round for 1.5 (1.5,1.75'' or 3.75(3.75,4.5 cm))
then work increase round once as follows:


Next rnd:
*K2, M1; rpt from * to end 90 (102, 144) sts


Body:
Work plain stocking stitch (knit every round)
until
main body measures 2.5'' (6.25 cm) (3''(7.5), 3.5''(8.75)) from increase round.

Finishing:
Weave in all ends. A light blocking is recommended to help the shaping settle. It is best to block this Hat flat, as a circle, with the crown at the centre.
Knit for your special little princess and keep her little head warm in this soft knit beret.

  1. The first row after the brim. Is it actually knit 1, m1 instead of knit2, m1.
    I can't get 144 sts from 76
    Thx

  2. By the other sizes I think it should be 114, not 144.
