An oversized beret? I love the style and would like to make one but am not sure what I'm supposed to be looking for.

Fiber Trends has a pattern for an oversized beret:

What would I do? Continue in the round until it matched the first photo?

It almost looks like a Rasta hat (link to a pattern for a crocheted one).

Giant beret, knitted like a snood? The Fiber Trends pattern has a likely look to it.

That's what I thought, too, Donna. I figure I can just keep knitting in rounds. The reason I asked is the first photo came very, very close to resembling a project I saw displayed at a local LYS. I asked about it and was told it was a kit put out by Schaefer Yarns, but they didn't think the pattern itself was available, nor did they know how much the kit was. I refrained from wondering out loud why they would have it on display and not have any info.

I came home and started surfing the net.

I've discovered the first photo is of Emma Watson in one of the Harry potter movies. Any Harry Potter knitters out there?

I have a pattern for a beret that looks very similar to the photo. It's a pdf and the name is: "Tam Topper" by Kate Lemmers and Eileen Novak. The pattern is from kraemeryarns.com (contact info is: info@kraemeryarns.com) I'm pretty sure that the pattern was free.

[!] Looks like an old fashioned snood to me. I recall them from the early '40's when ladies went to work in the shipyards, et al and held their hair back. I was a little kid at the time and thought they were to die for. To be honest it do believe they were a safety factor for those fine ladies. Take care. Beverley

Not that it matters but thats not Emma Watson or a harry Potter movie, its The Secret Garden. :) Cute beret she's wearing though, I love that movie.

Diligence has paid off. It seems the young actress in The Secret Garden is Kate Maberly and I found a numbe of photos with the hat in question: http://www.geocities.com/kmpictures/page7_01.htm

And Carolyn, the link provided is perfect! Thank you.
