A top down slouchy beret style hat with a lace rose pattern at the crown. The yarn over increases and purl rows create the rose shape that gives the hat its name, conrós, meaning dog rose or wild rose as gaeilge. Yarn over increases divide the hat in five, each with a central wee lace rosebud pattern to compliment the crown. The self-stripping yarn gives a lovely sunset effect. A slouchy fit should fit any large child or adult head. Knit here in Drops Big Delight on 5.5 mm needles, it uses less than one skein of yarn. Block the crown of the hat to show off the pretty lace rose at the centre of the yarn.

      • Hi,
        I’m currently on maternity leave, just had a baby two weeks ago and don’t have the pattern in front of me at the moment. If you are having difficulty starting the pattern, maybe try the “belly button” technique for centre circular cast on. It is where you provisionally cast on with waste yarn and work a few inches in icord before changing to your actual yarn (leave a long tail) and work the increases. When the hat is finished, unravel the provisional cast on and with a tapestry needle pull the yarn tail through the live stitches as you would close the top of the hat. Hope this helps!
