Featured in this video – Cherry Blossom Sock Yarn from Global Backyard Industries
Global Backyard Industries provided the pretty Cherry Blossom Sock Yarn for this pattern. It’s a squishy and strong blend of extrafine superwash merino wool and nylon. The hand-dyed colorway has varying shades of pink for a lovely tonal effect.
Blocking is essential!
As with any lace design, blocking is an essential step. It relaxes the yarn, allowing the chain spaces to open up and spread out.
Without blocking, the circle may look smaller and ruffled, but once it is blocked it will grow a bit and will lay flat.
Where will you use it?
This lacy crochet flower circle doesn’t have to be the start of a beret. It’s a perfectly beautiful circle to use all on its own. Use it as a doily, a decorative wall hanging, or anywhere else you might want a crochet circle.
The video follows along with a stitch chart. You can get the chart in the Cherry Blossom Beret Pattern.
When I got close to the end of the video, I realized that the chart I used had a minor mistake in the last round. It still would have worked, but wouldn’t have matched the written instructions exactly. You’ll see a section in the video where I explain this mistake and swap out the corrected chart.
The mistake did not affect any instructions in the video, and the pattern has the correct chart. The only reason I even included the explanation at all is that a keen eye might notice the mistake in the background on parts of the video.
