Crochet Textured French Beret Free Pattern: The Inspiration

I absolutely love berets. Last Spring, I crocheted this lovely and feminine beret. This project has been very successful ever since. I absolutely love berets, and have since crocheted a few more designs. The Fleur De Lys Beret is a super chunky beret that is perfect for Autumn Winter. A few weeks ago, I also released Classic Red French Beret perfect for all seasons.

For this new crochet beret design, I wanted to crochet a textured design. I love French berets as I said, and this crochet beret is no exception. Indeed, I wanted to add a little something to this crochet beret, and this textured effect is perfect.

To create the textured effect of this beret, the Front Post Double Crochet stitch is used. I absolutely love this stitch, and have used before. The Mint Heart Sweater is perfect for Spring and Summer, and features the Front Post Double Crochet. This is a perfect crochet project featuring a lovely filet crochet design. The Bella Flower Cardigan is also perfect for Spring and Summer, and also features this textured stitch.

Crochet Textured French Beret Free Pattern: An Easy And Fast Project

This crochet project is really fast and easy to make. I decided to crochet this French beret with Caron Simply Soft yarn. I love this yarn as it is so soft, yet sturdy. It’s absolutely perfect for accessories. I used this yarn in the past for different projects, including The Sweet Sixteen Crochet Bag. This crocheted bag is perfect, and would be a perfect match combination with this textured beret pattern.

You can also use the yarn Drops Paris for this project. This is a beautiful sturdy 100% cotton yarn that is perfect to crochet accessories with. For reference, the pink crochet beret is crocheted with Drops Paris yarn, and the green beret is crocheted with Caron Simply Soft yarn.

You can crochet this project in many different colors

I also crocheted the Perfectly Pretty Pocket Shawl and the Lucienne Hexagon Cardigan with this yarn. Caron Simply Soft is 100% acrylic, and is so very easy to work with. This yarn is very soft, and very versatile too. It offers many different colors, which is great too. You can therefore crochet your favorite designs using one of their many different color choices. I love this versatility! And I know I will be using this yarn again very soon.

Let me know if you have ever crocheted with Caron Simply Soft, and if you love beret designs as much as I do!

General notes concerning this pattern

This crochet beret is crocheted in the round, and features a textured design made by using the Front Post Double Crochet (referred to as FPDC in this pattern).

To create a Front Post Double Crochet, you will be creating a Double Crochet around the corresponding Double Crochet from the previous row (see photograph). You will therefore yarn over, place your hook around the post (ie Double Crochet from previous row), pull up a loop and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through 2 loops.
