Cheetah Beret

I've recently been intrigued by Knitnerd's Mini Argyle Beret... and I am addicted to knitting them!! I have made 3 so far and I am planning to make even another (and possibly even another after that one... :D)

I have been thinking about patterns other than argyle that I can incorporate in this pattern for the beret. While I was looking through the patterns that I have collected from books and magazines, I found one for a cheetah spot pattern. I just barely got through fixing the chart so that I can finish the beret I am working on. (I just needed to find out how to make the decreases work with the cheetah pattern)

(I really want you all to enjoy :D)

I am excited to hear about and see the other masterpieces that everyone has made!! (Post them on
Ravelry so that everyone will enjoy them!)

Find the link to this pattern on the left of my blog in the "My Patterns" section or you can link to it

24 August 2008--I fixed the chart so that the spot pattern will not look wrong.

gauge? yarn weight? dimensions?

I used dk weight yarn (Knit Picks Merino Style), and size US 2 knitting needles.

Thanks for the chart, I made this (although I had to fudge it to get gauge with my yarn) and it was great fun to make

Hi, I am not sure how to do decreases, as I work from written patterns and am not sure how to follow chart once it tapers down.
thanks Belinda
