|The Lattice Hat by Kristin Omdahl, Interweave Crochet, Winter 2014|
The lattice hat uses a seamless Tunisian entrelac in-the-round technique that sounds much more intimidating than it really is! Trust me, this is coming from someone who has only dabbled in Tunisian and never done entrelac crochet. After sitting down with Kristin's tutorial, the pattern, and a hook, I gave the first large triangle section a try and was able to complete all six within about 45 minutes! Also to note, I was fresh out of Tunisian hooks so I grabbed a regular one that worked just fine as the passes only have 13 stitches at the most. (To clarify, I was using a regular hook with no padding or grip at the handle).
Give this fun pattern a try and please share your finished beret with us!
