Classic Elite Yarns Kumara Diamond Cap (Free)

Click here for free pattern.

This Kumara Diamond Cap uses simple repeats of knit/purl combinations that are easy to “read” after the pattern is established in the first few rows. The crown decreases are eventually worked into the pattern, creating a star at the top of the cap that looks a lot more intricate than it really is.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Kumara Diamond Cap (Free):

made this hat. it is beautiful. however, it didn't fit my adult daughter. looks like it would fit a 12 year old. found the 3/4 inch ribbing not enough, and the hat on looked more like a cap than a beret. i would get a second skein and make it wider and also add 1 or 2 more repetitions of pattern to make it look more like a beret. will try this pattern again.
