Decreasing with a BPDC
Using the instructions, work through 2 dc’s at once

Note 1:
The first ch 2 of every round is not counted as a stitch, to join rounds you will sl st into the ch 2 as if you were doing a front post st, *come from behind and into the gap between the chain 2 and the very first fpdc and make a sl st, then ch 2 to begin the next round*

Note 2:
You will be working the dc into the gaps between each fpdc and the dc, not into the eye of the dc

  • How to make a beret. Chunky Winter Beret - Step 1
    Step 1

    Begin
    Ch 3, work 14 dc into the 3rd ch from hook, sl st into the beginning ch 2 to join (see note 1.) (14 dc and 1 ch 2)

  • Step 2

    Row 1. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 2 dc in the gap between the 2nd dc just worked and the next dc un worked,* repeat to end finishing off with 1 dc in the gap between the last dc worked and the ch 2 joining st, sl st to join (see note 1.)
    (14 fpdc and 14dc)

  • Step 3

    Row 2. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 dc in the next 3 gaps*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 21 dc)

  • Step 4

    Row 3. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 dc in the next 4 gaps*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 28 dc)

  • Step 5

    Row 4. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 dc in the next 5 gaps*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 35 dc)

  • Step 6

    Row 5. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 dc in the next 6 gaps*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 42 dc)

  • Step 7

    Row 6. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 dc in the next 7 gaps*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 49 dc)

  • Step 8

    Row 7. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 dc in the next 8 gaps*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 56 dc)

  • Step 9

    Row 8. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 dc in the next 9 gaps*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 63 dc)

    Stop increasing

  • Step 10

    Row 9. repeat row 8, leaving the last gap un worked (14 fpdc and 63 dc)

    Start decreasing
    (Decreasing is accomplished by skipping the first and last gaps between the fpdc’s)

  • Step 11

    Row 10. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, skip first gap, work 1 dc in the next 8 gaps, skip last gap*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 56 dc)

  • Step 12

    Row 11. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, skip first gap, work 1 dc in the next 7 gaps, skip last gap*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 49 dc)

  • Step 13

    Row 12. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, skip first gap, work 1 dc in the next 6 gaps, skip last gap*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 42 dc)

  • Step 14

    Row 13. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, skip first gap, work 1 dc in the next 5 gaps, skip last gap*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 35 dc)

    Band

  • Step 15

    Row 14. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, bpdc next 2 dc together 2 times, bpdc next dc*, repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 35 bpdc)
    (for a larger hat stop decreasing here and work one row of 2 fpdc and 3 bpdc, fin off)

  • Step 16

    Row 15. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, bpdc next 2 dc together, bpdc next st* repeat to end, sl st to join (14 fpdc and 2 bpdc)

  • Step 17

    Row 16. Ch 2, *work 1 fpdc in the next 2 st’s, work 1 bpdc in the next 2 st’s* repeat to end, sl st to join
    (for an even smaller hat repeat row 16, fin off)
