Crochet Elegant French Beret Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I love classic French berets! They are so lovely and versatile. One of the first berets I ever crocheted is this feminine and delicate beret that looks beautiful in all seasons. It is a light and chic version of a French beret that looks perfect in all seasons.

This new design is slightly more chunky, perfect for the colder months. The Fleur De Lys beret I made last year is also a warmer design made with wool which is perfect for the cold. This classic Winter beret is also great for the colder months too.

I love berets as they are so versatile and fun to crochet! They can be made with different yarns for the different seasons. This textured French beret is also a beautiful addition to any hat collection. It is a classic design with extra texture, perfect if you want an extra little “je ne sais quoi”.

These different beret designs are beautiful, and always feminine! This new design is stunning, not only due to it’s simplicity, but also because of the scarlet color. The red color definitely gives this project a little extra beauty and femininity. I hope you enjoy this new project!

Crochet Elegant French Beret Free Pattern: The Design And Yarn

For this simple beret, I used one of my favorite yarns, Styecraft Special Aran. I used this yarn in shade Lipstick, which is such a stunning shade. For this project, I decided to crochet with two strands of yarn together to give this beret a chunkier and warmer design.

Recently, I crocheted The snow Princess Scarf with Stylecraft Special Aran yarn. This yarn is very beautiful and soft, and is perfect for crocheted accessories. The vintage Edwardian Era wrap is also crocheted with this beautiful yarn. I love this yarn so much! This yarn can be substituted easily with Paintbox Simply Aran or Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice yarn.

This easy man scarf is also a perfect example of an accessory crocheted with Stylecraft Special Aran yarn. Let me know if you enjoy crocheting with this yarn too! I love it so much as it is very versatile and many different projects can be made with it.

This new beret design features a very simple design that is crocheted fast. Indeed, two strands are crocheted together using a 7 mm crochet hook. This makes for a fast and fun beret design which makes for a perfect Christmas gift.

Round 3: Ch 2 (=HDC), place another HDC inside the first stitch (=2 HDC together in one stitch). Place HDC in next st, [2 HDC in next st, 1 HDC in next st] until eor (=30 HDC total). Sl st to 1st ch 2 to close off round.

Round 4: Ch 2 (=HDC), place another HDC inside the first stitch (=2 HDC together in one stitch). Place HDC in next 2 st, [2 HDC in next st, HDC in next 2 st] until eor (=40 HDC total). Sl st to 1st ch 2 to close off round.

Round 8-10: Repeat this process, of adding 10 stitches per round. You can achieve this by always adding 1 HDC on its own in every section of each round. A section of a round is the part between the 2 HDCs in one stitch which are spaced all around the rounds evenly.

For example, round 8 will be as follows:

Ch 2 (=HDC), place another HDC inside the first stitch (=2 HDC together in one stitch). Place HDC in next 6 st, [2 HDC in next st, HDC in next 6 st] until eor (=80 HDC total). Sl st to 1st ch 2 to close off round.
