Cut your yarn leaving about 12-20" for a tail. Thread the tail like a drawstring through the sts on your needle. Then use the rest of it to sew up the side edges. Look under the Tips tab for Finishing and the Mattress Stitch.

Do you have a smaller needle? The sts look pretty open on it. Orr... here's an idea. Double strand the yarn and follow the original pattern, though you'll have to use the larger needles on it.

Figure out how many sts/inch with your yarn and needles. Then look at the number of inches the cast on sts of the original pattern come out to. Multiply that times your sts/inch. Knit the ribbing for 8-10 rows, then inc. Again convert the original pattern sts to inches and then the inches to your gauge to figure out how many sts to inc. Knit to about 8" from the beginning and start the decs.

Or it may be better to find another beret pattern in the same type of yarn and needles you have. Look at knittingpatterncentral.com or dailyknitter.com for other patterns.

depending on what type of yarn you used you can always try shrinking it in the dryer after its been wet if the hat is too big

i think i've mentioned before, (or possibly it was in another thread) that on the packaging, it says the wool does not shrink. plus i want it too look all holey like it does.
