Another one of my crocheted caps, I used the same pattern as for my slouchy beret as the base pattern, but changed the stitches used. I will post the updated pattern later this week, if anyone would like.

I made this one while watching the Resident Evil triology.......






****PATTERN****
The combination of single and double crochet made the spiral like look.
Note: If you want a super slouchy beret, just increase....see the pattern from rows 4-10 each row increases by one. I used Simply Soft Eco by Caron which is medium weight with a K hook. I suggest using medium to light weight yarn for this as with bulky/thick yarn that the beret will become stiff. I made this in approximately four hours, while watching all three Resident Evils.
This is the perfect project for your favorite tv show marathon, movie day or trips.
Key: sc= single crochet         dc= double crochet                    sl. st.= slip stitch
         fpdc= front post double crochet                                      bpdc= back post double crochet

Came out great! You can also crochet a flower to give it just a little more pop.

I want this hat!!!! Whenever I try to do this kind of shaping, it just looks stupid and I end up unraveling it... You wouldn't happen to have any general tips to give on how to shape this kind of hat in general, would you? i.e. hat diameter in relation to head/brim size, types of stitches/yarn/needle size to use, etc.

Pattern is up!

I kind of winged the whole thing...but I did manage to write down the number of stitches in each row. I made this for my sister's friend for christmas and didn't even think to measure it, but it fits comfortably. I used single and double crochet as well as the puff stitch. The needle size I used was a size K, with Simply Soft Eco yarn by Caron which is medium weight. I wouldn't use anything heavier unless you want a stiff beret ^_^

I have a quick question. On row 3 you said that if you do 2 sc in 1 sc and 1 sc in next sc, you'd get 48 stitches but wouldn't you only get 36? you'd get 48 if you were doing 2 sc every sc.

You are probably right...I am working on another beret at the moment with this pattern, so I will double check....but I think you are right. I was wondering why the numbering in some of the rows seemed off.

Crocheting is still something I am learning, and just pretty much wing everything I make.

I tend to do that too (which is one of my downfalls-- I'm too lazy to make gauge swatches and some interesting things have happened...)

Yeah, I never take time to make gauges or anything and sometimes I lose count and count others twice. But I fixed the numbers. Grin

Cutest beret pattern I've seen so far. I would love to make this for a friend who's beret crazy. I know she'd flip.

I'm in awe of the talent on this site. So inspiring.

Thank you so much for sharing your pattern.  Cheesy
