A woman in a beret made of thick yarn does look fragile and very charming. In this article, a detailed description with diagrams of a very fashionable novelty - takes under the name "pink snow".

Responsibly select yarn

The beret yarn should be very soft and at the same time thick. Therefore, it is better to look at the “pink snow” model with skeins with acrylic and merino wool. Very beautiful and neat and most importantly, straight threads. It is not worth buying spiky varieties, even if everything suits both color and thickness. Such a beret will not be the first thing, but will remain dusted in the locker.

We select the right knitting needles

For thick yarn, you need to choose knitting needles in size. It is inconvenient to knit thin, and the thread can be easily damaged if you grab half the thread. Therefore, it is better to follow the advice of the seller and the relevant regulations for the skein.

What are the patterns for knitting a beret from thick yarn

Making knitting needles using thick yarn is not so difficult. Even the lightest schemes can make a beautiful product. For example, an elastic band 1 * 1 can create such an interesting hat.

How elegant the uncomplicated seamy side of the beret looks like.

We knit “pink snow” from thick yarn

A decent model of the headdress “pink snow” simply won the hearts of needlewomen. It’s so hard to find a good description for the product you like. Not in this case. Here's a beautiful one, followed by an equally beautiful description of how to quickly knit it with knitting needles.

To work, you will need:

  • yarn from merino wool and alpaca;
  • knitting needles number 7 and 9.

Knitting pattern

Two schemes were used in the work. The first is a 1 * 1 elastic band for the bottom. The second is beautiful pigtails, from which a very charming flower is obtained. The beret ends with a simple facial canvas.

Outline scheme

The base layout is actually represented by eight pairwise braids. A total of 16 pigtails. The width of each pigtail is 6 loops. As a result of reduction, such a flower is obtained. And the sides of each pigtail are the flower petals. One rapport is two pigtails. One has a cross to the right, the other to the left and then repeat such rapports in a circle. In one circle of such rapports 8. The distance from one cross to the second is 8 rows. Pigtails fit tightly in pairs and therefore, when crossing, a small pocket is obtained. Good reductions were made for the crown, and therefore the pattern on top is so much like an unusual flower or even a snowflake.

Step-by-step description of knitting

Stage: elastic

The model has a beginning in elastic. Therefore, we knit the number of loops for the elastic. It is advisable to tie a sample to accurately determine the loops for each corner.

Knit with elastic band 6 rows. This corresponds to 4 cm. Next, go to the main pattern.

Stage: base

For the main pattern, apply the rows from the diagram, as shown in the figure. Pay attention to the fact that all sizes are provided for 56–57 sizes. It is better to measure the depth of the cap in advance. It is measured from the lobe of one to the lobe of the second ear. Only the line must necessarily cross the line of the crown at its most distant place. This indicator should be divided by 2 and add 3 cm (since this beret has such requirements). Additions are necessary so that the ears are well closed, since the gum can slightly rise.

Stage: crown

To reduce the top of the head, first make contractions in the wrong loops between the pigtails. Next, reduce the braids in the front loops and in the very last rows of decrease gradually make up to 7 loops in a row. This will make the crown very flat. There will be 15 loops and assemble them into one loop. Tighten the thread and tie it tightly. Throw it to the wrong side and then fix it so that the product does not fall apart. It is better to wash and knit a knitted product so that the loops know their place and immediately take a good shape. Drying is necessary only on a jar with the same head circumference as the model.

Important! If you dry the hat on the jar, in which the circumference is several cm larger than the circumference of the model’s head, this will destroy the product and the threads will outgrow. The pattern may shift, and wearing such a product will be inconvenient. It will just become great.

How to decorate a beret from thick yarn

A thick yarn product can be decorated with a million different techniques.

  • Embroidery with volumetric ribbons looks very appetizing. Remains popular and beads. Different patterns from flowers to nets and different lace.
  • Using large beads for a headdress is very careful, as the product is very massive without it.
  • Rarely, but you will meet sequins on a knitted thing. For such a beret, you can try sequins, but it is better in combination with small beads.
  • An elegant satin ribbon can also complement the beret and even serve as a small bow. It is worth choosing not shiny, but if possible matte and dark ribbons.
  • A silver brooch for a knitted hat will be nice and appropriate.

Here are such interesting ideas in order to decorate a voluminous headpiece. Do not give up on a beautiful novelty, but it is better to study the proposed schemes and try to knit such a product and it is better again and again.
