Just finnished this hat- I love it! it's so sweet and pretty for spring. I made mine in a different (cheaper) yarn (same buttery yellow color), a blend of cotton and modal, so it's a little "floppier" than the one in the picture but still the classic beret shape. Fairly simple chart, even though there's patterning on every row. One modification: on the chart where it says to work one of the segments  twice, I only repeated it once because I thought my hat was full enough. If I had included that second segment, it would have been huge! just be sure to check your measurements before begining the "x2" segments. One detail that you can't see in the magazine picture is the beautiful flower shape that forms on the crown. I want to make another one in pale pink, or maybe even navy blue tweed for fall :)
