New design: a little twist

 I used I Love This yarn and it worked out nicely, super soft, too!
Simple hat, super fast, super easy, super cool!
You may want to use a larger size needle than you think you need, because there are not as many stitches as the average beret.

Sts = stitches
yo = yarn over
k2tog = knit two together
k = knit
p = purl
rnd = round

using size US 6 circular needles, cast on 75 stitches.
Work in 1x1 rib (k1 p1) for 7 rnds (or how ever lone you prefer) then switch to size US 10 needles.
Increase round: k7 m1 repeat for whole round. there should be five stitches left, if so knit them. (85)
Pattern round: *k2tog yo k3* repeat *to* for whole round.
Next round: k all stitches

Repeat these two rounds until hat is at least 7 inches or so.
Decrease round: *k2tog yo k2tog k1* repeat *to* for whole round.
Nxt rnd: k all sts
nxt rnd: *k2tog yo k2tog k2tog* repeat this whole round.
nxt rnd: k2tog all sts
nxt rnd: k2tog all

Break yarn and pull through remaining sts, pull tight and sew in ends.
