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
