Crochet Fleur De Lys French Beret Free Pattern
Hi everyone, today I am bringing to you a tutorial on how to crochet The Fleur De Lys French Beret pattern. This is a great project for beginners, which looks beautiful in all seasons. It is a Winter time beret, as it is crocheted with super chunky yarn containing wool. I used Sirdar Adventure yarn for this project, however you can use your favorite super chunky yarn if you prefer. Wool And The Gang’s Crazy Sexy Wool would also be a great substitute for this project.
The video tutorial for this project can be found here:
Crochet Fleur De Lys French Beret Free Pattern: The Inspiration
The Fleur de Lys beret is so feminine, perfect for the Winter months. Last year I crocheted an easy French beret that is also perfect for the colder months. It is slightly different to this new version, but is also a warm and cozy beret. This new version of a French beret is so delicate, and it is very easy to make too.
Last month, I crocheted this fine and delicate French beret. This beret from last month is a fine, delicate design, perfect for every season, not just Winter. It is crocheted with a finer yarn (Caron Simply Soft yarn).
I decided to call this beret “Fleur De Lys” as I was inspired by a character I really love from the novel Notre Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. Everyone who knows me, knows my favorite author is Victor Hugo. My all time favorite novel is Les Miserables. I actually have a few Vintage Crochet project that are inspired by Les Miserables if you are interested. The Fantine Shawl is a 19th Century French shawl inspired by my favorite character in Les Miserables. It is still one of my favorite projects to date.
You can also crochet The Cosette Shawl, also inspired by Victor Hugo’s novel.
This new beret is perfect for beginners. The name Fleur De Lys is inspired by the eponymous character in Hugo’s Notre Dame De Paris. I love this name so much! A fleur de lys in French is a beautiful flower (lily flower), which was the symbol of the French Royal Family for centuries.
Let me know if you enjoy my Vintage Crochet projects which are inspired by classic novels or films, such as Les Miserables.
Crochet Fleur De Lys French Beret Free Pattern: The Yarn
I used Sirdar Adventure yarn for this project. This yarn is so soft, perfect for Winter projects as it contains 20% wool, and 80% acrylic. I love this yarn so much, and crocheted The Rose Petal Jumper with it last year. I also made The Highland Queen Cowl with this yarn (using a different color).
This yarn is perfect for warmer weather. It is so soft and cozy, and I love how beautiful it looks. This beret is perfect when crocheted with this yarn. It makes for a very warm and feminine looking accessory, and it is great for chilly weather.
This French beret is perfect if you are looking to crochet fast yet lovely Christmas projects.
I hope you enjoy this fun and very French project, let me know in the comments if you enjoyed crocheting it.
