A Deathly Hallows Graveyard Beret

 So, the new trailer premiered and I fell in LOVE with this hat:

I went to work, found no pattern for anything close to it so I said "Hey! I'll make one up as I go!!!"

Here is the pattern: (please note, this was done by memory, so please let me know if any corrections are needed)

Size 7 dpn
Size 8 dpn
Yarn for size 8 (I used "I love this Yarn" Rosy Cheeks - I think)

MAJOR EDIT: It seems that the way I INC is not conventional. When it says INC, knit into the front and back of the same stitch. With the K1, INC instruction, you should turn 2 sts into 3, which is how I get to 122 from 82. You basically have 150% of the sts you started with. Hope this helps!

CO 82 sts
K1, P1 ribbing around for 5 rounds with size 7 needles
Change to size 8 needles
(K1, INC,) around until last 2, K2 (122 sts)

Begin pattern rounds:
1 -K2, P2 around
2 -K2, P2 around
3 -P2, K2 (you should be purling what you just knit for 2 rows and vice versa)
4 -P2, K2
Repeat rounds 1 - 4 until the piece measures 5.5" from the cast on edge.

You are now going to begin top shaping (NOTE: You will go in and out of EXACTLY following the pattern, but you won't be able to tell on the finished product. No worries :) )
1 -*S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, P2, K2, rep from * around to last repeat of this pattern. Instead of slipping a st and K2tog, knit/purl to the end (should be 2 extra sts)
2 (and every alternating round to end)-K/P in pattern
3 -*S1, K2 tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, P2, rep from * around to last repeat. Do as round 1.
4 - Repeat Round 2.
5 - *S1, K2 tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, rep from * around to last repeat. Do as round 1.
6 - Repeat Round 2.
7 - *S1, K2 tog, psso, K1, P2, rep from * around to last repeat. Do as round 1.
8 - Repeat Round 2
9 - *S1, K2 tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, rep from * around to last repeat. Do as round 1.
10 - Repeat Round 2
11 - *S1, K2 tog, psso, K1, P2, rep from * around to last repeat. Do as round 1.
12 - Repeat Round 2
13 - *S1, K2 tog, psso, K1 rep from * around to last repeat. Do as round 1.
14 - Repeat Round 2
Weave tail through leftover sts and pull shut.

i'll post on ravelry when i finish.

Love this !
I just finished my hat on Saturday and have worn it already - thanks so much ! My ravelry page (Skippydoo)just needs the pic.
I made a few changes, but I have no idea if they were pattern mistakes or my own inexperience. I made the body of the hat 120st because K2P2 is a multiple of 4. That meant when I reached the decreasing, there weren't any leftover stitches (are those extra stitches meant to create another part of the pattern that I missed ?) - the pattern flowed right through with no problem. Yes, there was the odd 'jog' in the pattern at the k2tog's but as you said, unnoticable once finished. I also started the decrease rows after a Row2 rather than a Row4 and that kept the pattern even - otherwise there would have been 4 rows of K's and P's on top of each other.
I may have made mistakes in your pattern, but my first hat turned out pretty well, I think.

Re: Love this !
120 was an adverse side effect of making the band the size I needed for my head...in retrospect, I could have made it 80 and not been uncomfortable, but as someone who has made many hats that came out too small I opted to be a little big, because even though you do two k2's in a row, the spiral of knitting in the round kepts them from completely lining up.

I am so glad you had a successful go at making this and cannot wait to see your finished product!

Okay, just out of curiosity and because I intend to make the beret:
What kind of yarn did you use or what kind would you recommend?
And how many balls did you need? Would one (with a length of about 130 meters) be enough?
Nov. 14th, 2010 11:33 pm (UTC)
I used the Hobby Lobby "I love this yarn," just because it was the right size for my needles and a color that I liked (though I wish it were a bit darker now...haha).

I only used 1 and still have a lot left - I could probably make a scarf, but am going to use it for mitts. Now, that ball of yarn was originally 335 metres, so you may just have enough, because I'd say I have 2/3 to 1/2 of it left.

Sorry I can't be more precise! Can't wait to see it finished!

I made the lovely hat :) Mine didn't come out with a swirly top like yours, it came out with a weird stocking stitch bit at the top. It was super quick to knit, and is really cute. THankyou :)

My daughter models:

Gorgeous! Thanks for sharing!

I just saw the movie Thursday at midnight and Friday at noon. The second time, simply to see this hat. I will definitely be using your pattern, and I am excited for it. However, I do think the one in the movie had a bit more of a brim, so I will make mine a bit thicker.

Nov. 21st, 2010 06:45 pm (UTC)
Yeah...from the one pic, it was hard to tell.

Finished a hat for my daughter today, FiaKnit on Ravelry. Thanks for the pattern. I used Drops Karisma 2 x 50g balls and used a little of the second ball. probably 60g in total.

Hope your daughter likes it!

Can I use circular needles until it gets too small for them? I just really hate dpn
Nov. 21st, 2010 06:42 pm (UTC)
I'm sure you can, I just never got the hang of circular needles so I've used dpn...

Thanks so much, I've been looking for a pattern since I saw the movie. I have some handspun purple wool that I think I'm going to use. The picture that I've seen almost makes the hat look slightly felted so using 100% wool and gently agitating it will give it that look. I'll need to make it larger since felted wool shrinks.

Hi, First of all thank you for posting this tutorial! I don't know how to needle knit so I tried this pattern out on my loom. The stitches are too loose, so it doesn't look the same. DO you know if there is any way to make the stitches tighter on a loom?

I don't know anything about knitting on a loom...sorry!

I just started knitting this pattern up and I noticed that when you finish the brim, you're supposed to k1 and do an increase all the way around resulting in 122 sts but if you do that with 82 cast on stitches you'll end up with 164 sts instead :/ I am confused... should I just do increases until I have 122 stitches then?
Dec. 14th, 2010 10:42 pm (UTC)
I think its how I INC that has caused all the confusion. You should K1, and then INC by K2 into 1 st (knit into the back and front of the same st). Does that make sense?

Love this!!!
I just finished mine today! :) Its cute but a bit big on me. I used a different color yarn to match something I already had but I plan on making another using BERNAT Satin Lavender, I think that is a close color to the original hat from the movie. Not sure if I did the shaping right though. The directions kind of confused me, but then again this is my first project other than scarves--I just didn't quite understand what the following meant:

"Instead of slipping a st and K2tog, knit/purl to the end (should be 2 extra sts)
2 (and every alternating round to end)-K/P in pattern"

Any chance you can clear that up for me?

Re: Love this!!!
I'll try my best (sorry it took so long to respond):

This is the original set of instructions for row 1 and 2 of top shaping, which is where the problem took place:

1 -*S1, K2tog, psso, K1, P2, K2, P2, K2, rep from * around to last repeat of this pattern. Instead of slipping a st and K2tog, knit/purl to the end (should be 2 extra sts)
2 (and every alternating round to end)-K/P in pattern

"Instead of slipping a st and K2tog, knit/purl to the end (should be 2 extra sts)" - I believe you should have two sts left after you repeat this for the last possible time, so instead of doing the beginning of that pattern again, you should just knit or purl in pattern.

"2 (and every alternating round to end)-K/P in pattern" - This is row two of your decrease and going to be every alternating round after (row 4, 6, 8 etc.). All you do is knit or purl in pattern.

Hope this helps!!!!
