 YARN

Type of Yarn:
Big Twist Yarn or Red Heart Soft Yarn- Colorway- Wine
Mandala Ombre’ Yarn- Harmony

Yarn Characteristics:

Big Twist Yarn is a worsted yarn 100% acrylic yarn. This is a durable- value-priced yarn that is machine washable yarn. Perfect for berets, sweaters, blankets, and more.

Redheart Soft Yarn is similar to the Big Twist Yarn, 100% acrylic durable and valued price; however, it is readily available on the ground and online.

Mandala Ombre Yarn from Lion Brand is a beautiful yarn that changes color subtly. It is a slightly thicker yarn than the original Mandala Yarn. It’s 100% acrylic and is a 4-weight Yarn.

Colorway:
Big Twist Yarn- Wine
Red Heart Soft Yarn- Wine
Mandala Ombre- Harmony

Note:
I’ve made berets using the yarns listed above. All suggested yarns works up nicely. The Mandala Ombre yarn was slightly softer and I love the gradual color change.

You’ll only need one skein of either yarns; all is fair in love and yarn. While all three yarns are a great choice, pick up any 4-weight yarn that you love, and let’s get started.

DECREASE ROUNDS 14-17

Note

  • Decreasing can be completed in different ways.
  • The goal is to take the Beret down from 120 stitches to 60 stitches. Starting with round 14 and continuing until round 17.
  • Each round will decrease by 15 stitches. This will make the final decrease round, measure approx. 7.5” across. (This is the Diameter size to fit an Adult’s Large Head Size).
  • If you are altering this pattern, you will increase until you reach the desired head circumference and then decrease until you reach the round that fits the circumference/head measurement for your head.
 Option 1 for Decrease Rounds

Chain 2; 1 hdc in each of the next 7 stitches. Crochet a Half Double Crochet Decrease* (hdc2tog) in the next 2 stitches. Keep repeating from the *. Sl St to join to the first half double crochet.

 Option 2 for Decrease Rounds

Skip over stitches, throughout the round, to decrease. Be sure to decrease by a total of 15 stitches.

Example for Option 2: (Skipping one stitch every 8th stitch).  1hdc, 1hdc, 1hdc, 1hdc, 1hdc,1hdc, 1hdc, skip a stitch, repeat hdc each stitch skipping the 8th stitch continue around, sl st to join round.

Rnd 14: Ch 2 ,*1 hdc in each of the next 7 stitches. Skip the 8th, [repeat from the *]. Sl St to join to the first half double crochet. [105]

Rnd 15: ch2, *1 hdc in each of the next 6 stitches. Skip the 7th, [repeat from the *.] Sl St to join to the first half double crochet. [90]

Rnd 16: ch2, *1 hdc in each of the next 5 stitches. Skip the 6th, [repeat from the *]. Sl St to join to the first half double crochet. [75]

Rnd 17:  ch2, *1 hdc in each of the next 4 stitches. Skip the 5th, [repeat from the *]. Sl St to join to the first half double crochet. [60]

BRIM

Rnd 18: ch2, hdc each stitch around. Sl st to join. [60]

Rnd 19: ch3, dc each stitch around. Sl st to join. [60]

Rnd 20: ch3, Alternate between fpdc and bpdc, each stitch around; sl st to join to the first double crochet, ch 1 [60]

Note:
Place a stitch marker in the ch 1 space to ensure you keep your place.

Rnd 21: sc each stitch around, sl st to join round. Place stitch marker if continuing to Rnd 21. [60]

Optional Rounds

Either option will tighten the Beret. This is not a necessary step if the hat fits comfortably around your head.

There are a couple of options to tighten your Beret if needed:

Option 1:
Rnd 21: sl st each stitch around; join rounds.

Option 2:
In Rnd 20, above, sk a few stitches as you work around to decrease from 60 stitches to 56. This action will also tighten the Beret.

Note: You do not have to do both options. The Ooh, La-La Crochet Beret is created for an Adult.

Optional Loop – at the Top of Beret

Use the tail from the Magic Circle or attach a piece of yarn (12 inches) at the top of the Beret.

Create a chain of 6 or 7 stitches, and fold the chain in half. Finish off, leaving a tail, to secure the loop.

Using the yarn needle, sew down the looped chain to the top of the beret to secure the loop.
