Crochet French Coquette Beret Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I love crochet berets so much! Indeed, I have designed many crochet beret patterns, and I love all of these so much! One of my favorite designs I have made is the traditional French beret. It’s such a lovely and simple design, and I still enjoy this pattern so much.

This new design is crocheted with 100% cotton yarn, and it features a feminine shell stitch edging. This simple edging adds so much elegance and delicacy to this otherwise simple design. This crochet beret is perfect for the warmer months as it is crocheted with cotton yarn. If you are crocheting a winter beret, you can easily substitute this yarn with a wool or acrylic yarn to make it warmer.

Crochet French Coquette Beret Free Pattern: A Pattern Inspired By Paris

Being French, I love the Parisian aesthetic. Indeed, I love berets, ballet pumps, a simple floral dress, and a dash of red lipstick! Many of my crochet patterns are inspired by my home country, that is France.

This is a very elegant beret

Of course, all of my beret designs are typical French fashion designs. The Fleur De Lys Beret is inspired by the French aesthetic also. L’Artist French Inspired wrap is also inspired by Parisian fashion. I love all of these designs so much, and I can say in truth that they were inspired by my home country.

This classic red beret is so pretty and feminine, a perfect accessory that matches my French inspired wraps.

The Bretonne Wrap is part of my Vintage Crochet Series. It is inspired by the 1940s French fashion; it’s so pretty and features a very unique design too. I crocheted this wrap after watching “Le Silence De La Mer”, a film which takes place in France during the war in the early 1940s.

I hope you enjoy this new crochet pattern!

Pattern begins here

Ch 4, sl st to form a ring.

1: Ch 3 (=DC), place 11 DC inside the ring (=12 DC total). Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

2: Ch 3 (=DC), place another DC inside the first stitch (=2 DC together in one stitch). Place 2 DC inside next DC until eor (=24 DC total). Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

3: Ch 3 (=DC), place another DC inside the first stitch (=2 DC together in one stitch). Place DC in next st, [2 DC in next st, 1 DC in next st] until eor (=36 DC total). Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

Round 4

4: Ch 3 (=DC), place another DC inside the first stitch (=2 DC together in one stitch). [Place DC in next st, 1 DC in next 2 stitches] until oer (=48 DC total). Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

5: Ch 3 (=DC), place another DC inside the first stitch (=2 DC together in one stitch). [Place DC in next st, 1 DC in next 3 stitches] until oer. Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

6: Ch 3 (=DC), place another DC inside the first stitch (=2 DC together in one stitch). [Place DC in next st, 1 DC in next 4 stitches] until oer. Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

7: Ch 3 (=DC), place another DC inside the first stitch (=2 DC together in one stitch). [Place DC in next st, 1 DC in next 5 stitches] until oer. Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

8-12: Repeat this process, of adding 12 stitches per round. You can achieve this by always adding 1 DC on its own in every section of each round. A section of a round is the part between the 2 DCs in one stitch which are spaced all around the rounds evenly.

For example, round 8 will be as follows:

Ch 3 (=DC), place another DC inside the first stitch (=2 DC together in one stitch). Place DC in next 6 st, [2 DC in next st, DC in next 6 st] until oer. Sl st to 1st ch 3 to close off round.

Round 13 (to create beret shape)

Ch 1 (=TC), SC in 1st stitch, place your stitch marker in this stitch. [Sk 1 st, SC in next st] until eor; sl st to first SC to close off round.

14: Ch 3 (=DC), turn your work (optional), DC into next st until eor (=74 DCs total).

15: Ch 3 (=DC), 4 DC in 1st stitch (=5 DC and 1st shell stitch cluster), sk 2 st, SC in next st, * sk next 2 st, 5 DC in next st, sk 2 st, SC in next st.

Repeat from * until last 3 stitches; now slip stitch through 2nd stitch before last, and slip stitch through the ch 3 from the beginning of round to anchor down the first shell cluster (where we began). Pull the yarn through the 2nd st before last and fasten off.

Tidy up all loose ends.

Make sure you gently pull on center loose end (where we began), to close up centre. Weave in the end to avoid unraveling, fasten off loose end.
