1  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / Fun Spring Beret-- with pattern! on: March 15, 2013 08:28:19 PM
I found the CUTEST pattern for a puff stitch beret with bow detail on crochetme that I just had to have. After three failed attempts at the pattern, I finally had enough and created my own pattern based off of the aforementioned hat. This is a super easy pattern that works up in about 4 hours for experienced crocheters. Beginners could easily work this up over a weekend. Anyway, pics!


Here is the bow detail. I used a 100% bamboo yarn, so mine is already a bit stretched out. Acrylic yarn remedies this stretching. I have a feeling washing it will tighten it back up.

Close-up of the puff stitch pattern. It reminds me of the little buds all over the trees in my yard.

Aaaaand the obligatory "this is how it looks when you wear it" photo, as modeled by me.

Pattern! Woo!

Materials: about 270yds of worsted weight yarn (preferably something on the thinner side, with some sheen to really bring out the stitch detail) and a size F (4.0mm) crochet hook

This hat is made in the round and fits most adult women. The opening seems tiny, but it stretches to accommodate my 20" head, as well as fitting my tiny teen niece's head, so you should be good. The finished product is a floppy beret straight outta hipster weekly. <3

Fasten off. (Whew!)

Bow (optional):

Bow body:
Ch 61, turn.
Rows 1-6: sc in next 60, turn.
Fasten off.
To assemble bow, fold in thirds, and "swing out" the ends like little wings. Use a scrap piece of yarn to tie the center tightly.

Bow center:
Ch 11, turn.
Rows 1-4: sc in next 10, turn.
Fasten off, weave in ends.
Sew ends of bow center together. Pull bow through bow center and sew together to secure. (This is a bad description, I realize. Make it look like a bow, lol.)

Finishing:
Sew bow onto beret on row 20 (the hdc row.) Sew down the loops of the bow to keep them from flopping about. Weave in all those nasty loose ends. Cheesy


Let me know if anyone tries out my pattern, and if I can clarify any of the instructions.

Happy hooking!
xoxo
