Simple beret crochet pattern




Do you know my Little Red Riding Hood Beret? I am releasing the new version of the original pattern. It is simplified, but a little bit tighter than the sample one was. The first sample of this hat has been made with 3.5 mm hook and DK weight yarn, the number of stitches were divisible by 16. This version is simplier. I used 4.00 mm (G hook) and worsted weight yarn for a fitted looking, the number of stitches is divisible by 12. 


Here is the newly made simplier version of this beret. This time in creamy peach color:


Difficulty level: easy – for beginners too (ch, dc, basic decreasing and increasing technics)
Finished measurements: fits to an average women’s head

Materials: 

worsted weight yarn (approx. one smaller ball)

crochet hook G/ 4.00 mm

stitch marker (if you feel more comfortable with it)

tapestry needle (to weave the ends)



Abbreviations:
ch 
chain
dc
double crochet
dc2tog 
decreasing two stitches with double crochet
sl st 
slip stitch
beg
beginning
w/
with
**
repeat between
[ sts]
total number of stitches in the round


Gauge: Crochet the R1-2 and measure the diameter of your circle: it must be around  2.5"/6.5cm


Notes: 1. The hat is crocheted in the round. At the end of the rounds join with a sl st to the top of the first ch3.2. The first ch4 count as 1dc + 1ch. / The first ch3 count as 1 dc.


INSTRUCTIONS


R1 Ch6 and join w/ a sl st to the beg. Ch4 (count as 1 dc + 1ch) and make *dc1, ch1* 11 times to the ring. At the end join with a sl st to the top of the first ch3. [24 sts]
R2 Ch3 and make 1 dc in the same st. Ch1. *dc2 in next st and ch1* 11 times. [36 sts]
R3 Ch3 and make dc1 in the same st, dc1 in next st . Ch1. *dc2, dc1, ch1 * 11 times. [48 sts]
R4 Ch3 and make dc1 in the same st, dc1 in next 2 sts. Ch1. *dc2, dc1 in next 2 sts, ch1 * 11 times. [60 sts]
R5 Ch3 and make dc1 in the same st, dc1 in next 3 sts. Ch1. *dc2, dc1 in next 3 sts, ch1 * 11 times. [72 sts]
R6 Ch3 and make dc1 in the same st, dc1 in next 4 sts. Ch1. *dc2, dc1 in next 4 sts, ch1 * 11 times. [84 sts]
R7 Ch3 and make dc1 in the same st, dc1 in next 5 sts. Ch1. *dc2, dc1 in next 5 sts, ch1 * 11 times. [96 sts]

R10-11 Ch3. dc1 in next 8 sts. Ch1. Dc1 in ea dc’s and ch1 in ea ch’s of prev round. [120 sts]

If you were using a bigger hook than recommended, the hat might be too wide. In this case have you have two choices:
1. in R16 don’t make hdc in the ch’s. Total number of stitches will be 60.
2. or follow the instructions and switch to the recommended hook.

Finishing 1 (for a more fitted looking):

R12 At the end of the prev round join w/ a sl st to the top of the ch3. Dc1 in next 5 sts, dc2tog. Ch1. *dc2tog, dc1 in next 5 sts, dc2tog, ch1* 11 times. [96 sts]
R13 At the end of the prev round join w/ a sl st to the top of the ch3. Dc1 in next 3 sts, dc2tog. Ch1. *dc2tog, dc1 in next 3 sts, dc2tog, ch1* 11 times. [72 sts]
R16-18 Ch2 (count as 1 hdc). Hdc1 in ea sts (in ea dc’s and ea ch’s) around. [72 sts]

Note: make more or less hdc rounds for your desire. 

Alternative finishing (for a slouchier fit): 

R12 Ch3, dc1 in next 3 sts, dc2tog, dc1 in next 3 sts. Ch1. *dc1 in next 4 sts, dc2tog, dc1 in next 3 sts, ch1* Repeat 11 times.[108 sts]
R13 Ch3, dc1 in next 2 sts, dc2tog, dc1 in next 3 sts. Ch1. *dc1 in next 3 sts, dc2tog, dc1 in next 3 sts, ch1* Repeat 11 times. [96 sts]

R15 Ch3, dc1 in next st, dc2tog, dc1 in next 2 sts. Ch1. *dc1 in next 2 sts, dc2tog, dc1 in next 2 sts, ch1* Repeat 11 times. [72 sts]
R16-18 Ch2 (count as 1 hdc). Hdc1 in ea sts around. [72 sts]

  8. I like this pattern, but my work is looking lacy rather than flat and circular. I am doing two double chains in one stitch followed by double chain in the following stitches as directed, ending in a single chain. Then I repeat as directed. Am I doing this wrong? Help please!

    1. Sounds good the way you're working.
      There are 12 blocks, each block contains dc2 in first st and than 1dc in following sts and a chain at the end.
      Happy crochet:)
      If you have any troubles contact me, I am trying to answer ASAP

  9. Hello, I love the red hat, beautiful. I like to try the original pattern but I'm confused about the "divisible by 16?" Could you explain or do you have the original pattern posted? Thanks a bunch...

    1. I used for the red one 3.50 mm needle and sport weight yarn.
      It is really simple.
      - started with 16dc's in the ring
      - made one more increasing round (in R10 totally 160 sts)
      - made 5 decreasing rounds (144 sts - 128 sts - 112 sts - 96 sts - 80 sts)

      I hope this helps :)

  13. Do you mean in the spaces? Not in the actual stitch? Do you have pictures or video? That would really help. Thanks!

    1. Yes! That means work in spaces between stitches. This video may help you:

  15. I'm not sure if it's just me but I'm having trouble with round 12. In the first segment it's not lining up to the segment of the previous round... I'm assuming it's supposed to? "join w/ a sl st to the top of the ch3. Dc1 in next 5 sts, dc2tog. Ch1." It doesn't seem to line up for me. I made sure I have the correct number of stitches (120) in round 11. Halp!

    1. In round 11 you have 9dc's and 1ch in one segment, so totally 120 stitches. In next round the instructions call for decreasing each segments with 1 or 2 stitches - it depends which finishing you chose. You have right, there is an error at the beginning of the decreasing rounds. So instead of "join w/ a sl st to the top of the ch3. Dc1 in next 5 sts, dc2tog. Ch1." ....
      --> R12 At the end of the prev round join w/ a sl st to the top of the ch3. ch3, dc2tog, dc1 in next 4sts, dc2tog, ch1.*dc2tog, dc1 in next 5 sts, dc2tog, ch1* 11 times. [96 sts]
      R13 At the end of the prev round join w/ a sl st to the top of the ch3.ch3, dc2tog,Dc1 in next 2 sts, dc2tog. Ch1. *dc2tog, dc1 in next 3 sts, dc2tog, ch1* 11 times. [72 sts]

      Thank you for your comment, I am going to fix the pattern!

Crochet purse for the Summer

Yippie, I have made my very first summer purse! Okay, actually it is not a new project,  a couple weeks ago you could already see some WIP pictures of it, but on the past weeks I was obsessed with sewing. That's why I deferred publication.
So time to show you one of my favourite crochet object. It is finally something for myself!! After several baby hats and simple amirgurumis for my family, I made a bag for myself... just for fun... You probably know what does it mean: when your family and friends discover 'your talent',  you don't have time to create just for yourself.



You could have already seen these squares and here where I promised, that I would make a bag from it!  So I kept my promise. It wasn't easy to turn the granny into a bag (or bag-like) shape. After several tryings with flowers and different shapes I found the simple chain loops the easiest way to turn the square into a bag.
It is not a big purse, I am sure that I won't take it for shopping, but…

Crochet Frog Applique {pattern}

A few months ago my cousin sent me a picture from a pair of baby shoes with frog applique, that she wanted for Lili. I made a quick google search for a pattern, but didn't find any. So I tried to figure out how to crochet the applique. I must confess, that the shoes are still not ready, because the first try turned out too small for Lili's feet. And now as she is learning to walk, she needs for professional shoes. So I will use these frogs later for another project. If you have any tip what should I make with them, share with me!

Materials:  - a few yards of DK weight yarn (or any weight by your choice) in green, white and red
Tools & notions: - G / 4.00 mm hook - safety eyes
- needles
Instructions The Head Chain 4. R1 Ch2, make 1hdc in the 3rd st from the hook. Hdc 1 in next 3 sts. In last (corner) st make 4 hdc's. On the back side of the beginning ch-4 make 1 hdc in next 3 sts, make 2 sts in last st. Join to the top of the beg ch2 with a sl st. R2 Ch2, make 1 hdc in sa…
